Nanoism (edited by Ben White / @benwhitemd) is/was an online venue for Twitter-fiction: stories of up to 140 characters. It ran from 2009-2023, and this was the pitch:

Shorter than traditional flash fiction, it’s both a challenge to write and quick as a blink to read. Call it nanofiction, microfiction, twiction, twisters, or tweetfic—it doesn’t matter: It’s the perfect art form for the bleeding edge of the internet revolution.

We’re not just catering to the 21st-century attention span, we’re publishing flexible fiction: stories that you can read on your computer or cellphone, stories that fit in the cracks of your day.
