Have you ever wondered what the point of gaining more followers is?  Part of the reason is so that you can engage with incredibly talented people.  Talented people tend to be creative, and one of our recent batches of new followers included some great creatives.  Among them was the author of this short story, which we thought we would blog in four parts.  Enjoy!

Steven Zairlin Connor Diorr, son of Count Morlean Donovan Diorr, heir to the largest private estate in Dynasty City (save the Patron’s own), found half a roast beef sandwich in the trash barrel behind the Hog’s Head pub.  It was, therefore, a reasonably good morning.  He had most of a skin of wine in his belly already – enough to hold down the shakes, at least – and he’d even slept in a dry doorway.

Good omens, all.

The reeking alleyway behind the Hog’s Head sheltered him from the sun as it crept higher in the sky.  He kept to the shadows, kicking back the occasional rat when the creatures grew too bold.  Two days previously, the rats had made a meal of Travish during the night.  Travish had been Steven’s only friend and his partner in vagrancy.  He’d been a decent enough fellow, whatever his previous crimes might have been.  He hadn’t deserved to leave the world as food for vermin.

Perhaps I do, Steven thought.  He rubbed slender, dirt-caked fingers across his patchy beard.

A judge has ordered Facebook and twitter to be brought before him to answer for allegations of contempt of court over the publication of pictures identifying the 2 boys convicted of murdering Ana Kriegel.

If you read enough of the news, you would possibly assume that Twitter (and its CEO) is laying dead within the water for all to see. But, in its most recent financial statements, the corporate is proudly declaring that it isn’t dead yet, and may not be for some time. Within the last 3 months, Twitter’s user numbers rebounded and its operating financial gain continued its slow, but steady, rise.

Those are “Monetizable Daily Active Users,” namely people who use the site on a daily basis and that ads can be sold against. Twitter’s domestic user figures went from twenty seven million last quarter to twenty-eight million in this, however saw international usage leap from ninety nine million in q4 to one hundred and five million now.
