To launch their new premium British drama channel @BBCFirstAus, the BBC are giving fans on Twitter an Australian-first the chance to create the storyline of their own drama with writer and director @GracieOtto.
Every day this week, @GracieOtto is guest-Tweeting from @BBCFirstAus to crowdsource a dramatic narrative. Using the hashtag #WhatsNext, users can help @GracieOtto craft the twists and turns of an evolving story, written 140 characters at a time.
As fans on Twitter make suggestions in real time, @GracieOtto will introduce props and thematic inspiration to shape a coherent and compelling story.
Each following day, the latest installment will be released on @BBCFirstAus and the BBC Australia website where Twitter-contributors will be credited and can see how their Tweets have been weaved into the story.
To kick things off, @GracieOtto has developed a narrative framework with five characters. Over five days, the audience will decide each of their fates.
