abookduct is collaborative writing on twitter.
It is about bringing different people together on the web to write a book, tweet by tweet, taking turns adding to the draft.
It is a wordplay on "abduct" with "a book duct", because it is:
- a channel for writing something on twitter, thus each book being written is considered a 'duct', by which people channel their collaborative work.
- a social network that 'abducts' people into writing and collaborating, involving them.

(Note: the design does NOT need to be similar to the current design on the website)
It is also refered to as #abookduct due to this being the hashtag that identifies collaboration on twitter (aside from a unique hashtag for each book duct).
We support fiction as well as non-fiction and any other inventive writing format that can be thought up.
We are preparing to relaunch the twitter service in early 2011, with a website fully programmed around the API to automate the collaborative process; after testing the system with two successful short stories written by dozens of people.
Twitter users of all demographics, who like reading, from Twilight teen fans to stay-at-home moms, passing through non-fiction business readers and much more.
We need the background to feature an abookduct logo, which is to be created by the winning designer.
The logo designed MUST lend itself to being iconized (like creating an icon out of a remarkable element in the full logo), such as for the twitter avatar and for a favicon.
We need the following:
- Twitter background file.
- Color codes for the twitter profile.
- Full logo (on a separate file).
- Avatar (square; on a separate file).
We need these 3 final files in .svg only, with all elements individually modifiable (vector).
