Ten Authors Who Are Brilliant at Twitter


Recommended Posts

Article here.

 

Which authors do you follow? I follow one book critic but don't think I any follow authors beyond those who are, or have been, A&F regulars.

 

"What matters are movies, not awards; experiences, not celebrations; the subjective power of individual critical points of view, not the declamatory compromises of consensus." - Richard Brody, "Godard's Surprise Win Is a Victory for Independent Cinema," The New Yorker

Good question. I don't think the article answers it, although Twitter requires the discipline of concise expression of thought. There's an art to it, but one that I don't always find admirable.

Stephen King

Paul Cornell

Charlie Higson

Jeremy Duns [but especially if you also follow Glenn Greenwald. Fun times]

Lawrence Block

Bill Crider

 

And don't forget:

Geoffrey Chaucer

Alexander Pope
