Stephen King on Twitter
One of the most beloved purveyors of horror and suspense has finally joined the twitterati. @StephenKing has stacked up more than 172,000 followers in three days. Making him one of most-followed authors on Twitter.
King, who’s written 56 novels in his 40-year career, started out uncertainly in the 140-character form. His first text read: “On Twitter at last, and can’t think of a thing to say. Some writer I turned out to be.”
One of King’s early followers was his son, novelist Joe Hill who tweeted; “Tweet whatever you want. Just don’t let me catch you with your hand in your pants.”
