Black Princess Tells Story Via Twitter


WASHINGTON - The second installment of the Princess Briana series will be told by the character, Princess Briana, via tweets throughout the day for at least 30 days. Starting today follow the Princess Briana story entitled "Princess Briana's Journey to the Far East" on Twitter.

The last tweet of each day will leave a cliff-hanger or an unanswered question that will be revealed the next day. Several times during the course of the story, the twitter followers of Princess Briana will have a chance to guess the answers to win prizes. All answers must be posted on Princess Briana's Facebook page to be eligible. Princess Briana has built a very dedicated following on Facebook with fans from around the world spanning 20 different countries.

Using twitter to tell the second Princess Briana story will give the audience an experience unlike any other fairytale. The author, Yaba Baker said “This is a great way to merge a traditional form of storytelling with today's technology. A fairytale told through twitter allows everyone to experience the story in real time which is unlike any princess story in history. People are always talking about how technology is pulling families apart. Moms, dads, daughters, and sons have a chance to use technology to come together, to have something to talk about everyday. The story is literally unfolding all during the day, everyday, and it's totally free!”

The first Princess Briana book was published in 2005. The fairytale received rave reviews from psychologists, teachers, parents, and achieved the highest rating on Amazon.com of five stars for its fun yet groundbreaking story that tackles issues dealing with self-esteem. To get the background story before the twitter story begins, the Princess Briana book can be purchased in seven different countries (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, and China) as well as on the continent of Africa at princessbriana.com. One reviewer from Amazon.com said “This was one of the best new princess stories I have read. I purchased it for my daughter to have in her book collection. I read the story and immediately wanted to purchase books for every little girl that I knew. The story is well written, great moral, and deals with sensitive issues like ‘what is beauty' in a wonderful way. It takes a sensitive topic and handles the issue with grace, the way I would hope my daughter could grow to deal with such an issue.”
Princess Briana's first appearance was not in a book. She first appeared as the lead character in a script for an animated movie in 2003. The script placed 2nd runner-up in the Hollywood Black Film Festival script competition. Just Like Me, Inc. is in the process of producing the animated movie featuring Princess Briana with a projected release date in 2014.
