Real-time Broken Telephone over WebRTC. Play Broken Telephone or submit text to be 'broken' using Twitter @BrokenTele or #BrokenTele.
Note: To play, you need 2 or more active users. Get a friend to join if there is no activity when you visit.
Play Broken Telephone to get started, you'll either be reading text out loud for a player to write down, or you'll be listening to a player reading a tweet for you to write out.
To submit text for mangling, first authorize, then tweet to @BrokenTele or #BrokenTele.
BrokenTele works on recent versions of Chrome and Firefox (desktop). Opera, Firefox-on-Android, and Chrome-on-Android might work, too...

Thanks! We're glad you like it.
Hi thirdknife, I'm sorry there was no one for you to play with, I'll be on there at 8pm PST today if you want to give it another shot.
Hey @garannm, sorry to hear it was erroring out, the game relies on there being other players so maybe there just wasn't anyone on the first time you tried. If you managed to get it to work it means you either were reading a tweet submitted to be 'broken' or you were listening to another player read a tweet for you to 'break'. We retweet all the 'broken' tweets to https://twitter.com/BrokenTele so have a look and see who's tweet you 'broke'. We'd really appreciate it if you took another look, either submitting a tweet to be 'broken' by authorizing and using #brokentele or arranging to play when someone else is on the site.
Thanks for voting Danioso!
Thanks Nicole and I'm glad you like the screencast, nothing beats sock puppets.
