Wortharead Wednesday #17

These are the Twitter (#vss and other wise) stories that caught my eye over the past few days. I tend not to feature the very popular Twitter authors or publishing houses on the basis you will have found them if you are interested. My process is that I favourite any that catch my eye during a day’s viewing as well as doing a search via various #hashtags on Wednesday.  To hold my interest, I want for example, an unexpected twist, a quirky idea or scene, a playful use of words or my curiosity nudged into a ‘hmmm.’  A laugh or an aww won’t hurt either. This usually leaves me 20+ stories that I whittle down to five for no other reason that I can. Click on the image or name if you want to visit the story site. Or on the date stamp to go direct to the story.
