The Hottest Self-Publishing Platform? Twitter!
"While novels are commonplace now, long-form fiction was often consumed in serialized installments in the past. Take, for example, Dickens‘ The Old Curiosity Shop. Readers were so hungry to find out how the story ended that a mob stormed the wharf when the ship carrying the final installment docked in New York. Serialized fiction phased out when paper media had to cut costs and slim down (or wholly re-design) their issues, but new media—namely Twitter—is bringing the serial fiction format back, albeit bite-sized."
