In “140 Words or Less,” I wanted to convey the harm that social media is doing to the art of story telling. Our ancestors used to tell stories that would take up to half an hour or longer due to every detail that they told. However, now with social media like Twitter, Facebook, and things of the like we are being taught to keep our stories and thoughts under 140 characters. This is making the attention span of the population low, and taking away from the mysticism that story telling used to have. In “140 Words Or Less,” each story is abruptly cut off at 140 words, leaving the audience wanting to know the ending, but never satisfying that desire.
