Tim Burton is writing a new story for his superhero character Stainboy - with a little help from his fans on Twitter.com. The moviemaker's animated character first appeared in two poems in the book "The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy", and later featured in a series of short films titled "The World of Stainboy", in 2000.

Now Burton wants to expand his creation's story - and he's asked his followers on microblogging site Twitter to write the plot. Fans can 'tweet' a 140-character sentence to the "" director's account, and the best one will be selected each day and posted online to show readers the story as it develops.

The experiment, which launched on Monday, November 22, will run until December 6. It is not known if Burton has any future plans for the storyline.
