I have long dreamed of running an interactive Twitter storytelling event with a group of strangers in a Melbourne laneway. Last Tuesday night that dream came true.

Laneway Learning, a group of volunteers who make learning, cheap, fun and accessible, hosted the night.  The group who signed up for the evening exceeded all of my hopes as they tapped frantically on their phones, crafting a whole tale in only 30 minutes!

The group took all of the elements of a good plot, and made it better. The story begins when two people decide to meet up for drinks, a tortoise named ‘Dog’ orders a lettuce Martini and hilarity ensues.

The whole story has been uploaded on Storify for all posterity. Click here if you would like to see how it all ends!
