Social media is a place where anything and everything can go viral within minutes. Be it a picture, a video or a completely crap song, we have seen all of them turn into a sensation overnight. You can see #SixWordHorror trending today on Twitter. The micro-blogging site is filled with horror stories from people all over the world but the unique thing about them is the fact that they are only written using six words.
It all began after popular comic book writer Gail Simone’s challenge to Twitter to write about horror experience in merely six words. Soon the #SixWordHorror challenge which was a hit on Reddit a few years back made its way to Twitter.
People took it as a chance to share the scariest story they have ever known, where there were others who gave it a funny twist by adding humor to the tale. Soon the micro-blogging site was filled with six-word stories that weren’t scary but aimed at political leaders, government organizations or social problems like global warming, pollution, etc. in the society.
