To date, Questioningly, our Twitter-based game show, has dealt with words: bad words, then rhyming words. (See the results of last week’s clerihew contest here.) This week, we’re looking at something different. If you believe the Mayans—or, at least, the tabloid interpretation of the Mayans—the world as we know it may run into some unpleasantness later on in this calendar year. The end of the world means the end of Twitter, probably. So what’s the last tweet you will ever send? It can be a deathbed confession, a farewell-to-the-medium declaration, or the message you send as it turns out the Mayans were right all along—in which case your last tweet may well be the last tweet ever. For this week’s Questioningly, we’re asking you to write it. Think hard, because you won’t get a second chance.
Follow us on twitter (@newyorker), compose that final tweet, add the hashtag #tnyquestion <http://twitter.com/#%21/search/tnyquestion> , and send it off to us via the Internet. Questioningly runs Fridays until Monday morning, when we’ll retweet the winning entry, along with some runners-up.
