Yesterday Twitter went into meltdown over a woman’s story about a trip to Florida with someone that she met a Hooters.
Aziah King, with the Twitter handle @_zolarmoon, shared the events in a series of over a hundred tweets, and tells of stripping, prostitution, pimps, a failed suicide attempt and a possible murder. While the story has since been deleted, it was clear from looking at her tweets after it went viral that this isn’t the first time she had posted it, but this time each part was retweeted hundreds of times, eventually resulting in not just the story, but the characters themselves becoming worldwide trending topics.
While it’s unclear how true the story is, it has been applauded for it’s character development, plot twists and suspense. There have been calls for it to be made into a screenplay, and compared to modern smash hit series like Empire. Aziah’s Twitter following went from 750 followers to 50,000 + overnight.
Want to read the full story? You’re going to need about twenty minutes, but it’s worth your while.
Perhaps this will spark a new trend in self publishing?
What do you guys think? Have you read it?

Wow, amazing story!
It was quite intruiging! I’m not sure about it – I want to believe it was real but I’m not sure if it is.
For years the academic murmer is that the novel is dead, that there are no new stories to be written. “They’ve” been telling that story since I was an English Major almost 40 years ago. But we are just too creative. Writing will find a way.
Absolutely! That’s why I love it so much!
That’s interesting. I completely missed that story yesterday. Unfortunately I was working. I may have to rethink how I market my books.
So sorry Phil, as you can see I let my comments get away from me again! Yeah you should totally do that for your next novel!
I’m going to read this when I get home (it sounds awesome!)!
What did you think of it?
It was a hot mess, lol I couldn’t even imagine! It definitely kept my attention though
Oh, if ONLY I had time to spend on this. Maybe later. It’s just not on my top 10 this week, and in fact, I barely have time for my Top 10 since I am on vacation!
Haha! Please forgive my late reply – did you get change to read it? How was your vacation by the way?
I am just bummed I didn’t think of that first.
It’s a genius idea isn’t it!
I read it – and it was a good story, kept me reading till the end. Interesting way to tell a tale, felt very authentic even if it wasn’t true, though I thought the ending seemed a bit neat. If it was true – how awful!
I know! I want to believe that it was true and yet hope it wasn’t!
Now that’s truly a novel (pun intended) idea!
i need a drum kit to do the bah-bum! Haha!

Never heard of it or saw any of the tweets.
It went completely mental for about 2 days but it has died down now… I’m still on the fence about it i suppose…
