‘Roger Cosmonkey:’ Twitter’s First Series

Next Previous

Earlier this year, comedian and filmmaker Cory Edwards kicked off the "first episodic Twitter series” ever, Roger Cosmonkey, which follows the bizarre adventures of a freakishly intelligent, "morally vacuous" monkey. Edwards told Entertainment Weekly that he enjoys the "limitations and challenges" of Twitter storytelling. In tidy tweets of 140 characters or less, he furthers the plot and links to a panel of artwork. The form definitely hasn't limited the creative sprawl of Edwards’ stories and, like Iran, it’s helped send yet another monkey out into the universe.
