Margaret Atwood has joined Twitter. Atwood’s no stranger to technology, of course, check out Atwood’s “Long Pen,” for proof of that, but to see an author of such stature take to Twitter is both surprising and deeply amusing. She’s written about it here. Atwood tweets about all sorts of things: environmental issues, her books and other projects, but what’s really interesting is her posts about the incidental details of her life: the time she had to have her wisdom teeth “hammered out,” her cell phone pics and her occasional asides to her fans.
If Atwood has determined that Twitter might be a useful communications platform for furthering her career and personal interests, then perhaps you might want to consider doing the same. If you do, add me (and Atwood). I’m at http://www.twitter.com/mattstaggs.
