The microblogging service Twitter is revolutionizing the world 140 characters at time. It has helped topple dictatorships and report on secret counterterrorism raids. It has given rise to anthropomorphic red pandas and brown bears. Its latest twist: a choose-your-own adventure story.
The adventure begins on @wnd_go, which contains this single tweet:
— A dreadful start (@wnd_go) January 11, 2015
From there, the story branches out across other Twitter accounts, each of which represents a different choice and offers yet another set of paths to take.

— Why? (@wnd_why) January 11, 2015
…and then, seeing that resistance was futile, I hid.

You get the idea.
The Twitter-sized adventure is the creation of British software developer Terence Eden, who revealed it on Monday evening.
You should probably be asleep.
I've created a "Choose You Own Adventure" on Twitter.
