280-Character Microfiction

Twitter’s defining attribute has long been its brevity: 140 characters in a post and no more.  Now Twitter has doubled its tweet length limit to 280 characters.  In honour of this change, Electric Literature ran a 280-character story contest with the proviso that ““the story must be about something getting magically, randomly, inexplicably, or mysteriously bigger, longer, or just… more.”

The top five submissions have been chosen and illustrated by a cartoonist.  See the winners at https://electricliterature.com/behold-the-winners-of-the-280-character-story-contest-17532fb1ab9e.
