Joyce Carol Oates Joins The Twitter Community

Joyce Carol Oates Joins Twitter

Yes, you've read right. Joyce Carol Oates, legend of American letters and author of classic novels such as Blonde and Black Water, has joined Twitter for our entertainment (and presumably hers). How are her tweets? Awesome. Without further ado, here are a few samples on a different array of subjects.

On Domestic Life

On Publishing

On the Nature of Twitter (metatweeting?)


If you want to follow this pillar of American fiction, you can do so HERE. Not sure how long she'll keep interested, but I'll take this relief from the boredom of afternoons in the office while it lasts

She's been on social media for a little over a week and she's already better than most people at it. Love her. One of my favorite female writers.
