    It has now become : @StephenKing (and is also verified)
    And while you're at it, just follow : @ClubStephenKing

    He may not post often, and i am convinced that it's mostly to avoid what happened last week : someone pretended to be King on twitter.

    The towering giant of horror, Stephen King, will now be thrilling us regularly with his updates on Twitter.

    That's our hope, at least. King took his first tentative step onto the service Friday afternoon with this quip:

    My first tweet. No longer a virgin. Be gentle!

    His handle quickly gained a "verified" tick mark, and just as quickly changed from @StephenKingAuth to @StephenKing. Presumably whoever previously held that handle wasn't using it any more. (We've reached out to Twitter to find out.)

    But then King's Twitter experience took an eerily familiar turn. He fell victim to one of the same problems that afflicted Jack Torrance in The Shining: writer's block.

    On Twitter at last, and can't think of a thing to say. Some writer I turned out to be.

    Despite being late to the Twitter party, King is a fan of new media in general. In 2000, he published what is generally thought to be the world's first mass market commercial e-book, Riding the Bullet; later that year he distributed a serialized online work, The Plant.

    In 2009, King wrote a novella called UR, specifically tied to the launch of the Kindle 2 (it featured a prognosticating Kindle as part of the plot). A Twitter-based novella may not be that far behind.

    Meanwhile, if King needs advice on how to expand his Twitter presence, he could do worse than asking fellow horror author R.L. Stine. Last year, Stine offered a spooky Halloween story in the form of 13 tweets.

    Why? I think this is great. Finally some actual online presence for King. Other writers often interact directly with their fans online.

    Looking forward to a limited edition hardcover collection of King's tweets

    That's a kind of heavy interpretation for one cute little tweet. Too soon to assume that all we'll get is an account like this one: https://twitter.com/The_Alan_Alda

    I'm only saying it is common for most famous people someone pretends to be them. King should not worry that everyone believes it. We have to be skeptical.

    I'm not saying I approve. Why people do that, I can't understand. I see there must be some cheap thrill at first, but they ought to know better.

    Default Stephen King on Twitter

    Now that King has an official Twitter account, will all his tweets be regarded as "Non-fiction" and be collected in the various bibliographies?

    Na.
    At the best, his twitter account should be mentionned on a bibliography, but that's pretty much it.
    Unless is start publishing essays/short stories and cut them into tweets.

    I'd buy something like that if it was done in print form with a genuine signature.

    I haven't revisited Twitter since someone started sending spam from my account. I wonder what would King fans think if a similar thing happens to his account.

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looks like King's been pretty active on Twitter so far, and it's really him, not just a PR account.

    http://wonkette.com/539184/twitchy-h...all-his-novels
    The nine fulltime employees at Twitchy were shocked and outraged because novelist Stephen King said an extremely biased, unfair, and totally offensive thing today! Specifically, the wealthy horror-book machine tweeted a thing about Chris Christie. Hope you’re sitting down, because it is hyper-partisan!

    On the Bridge Scandal: Impossible to believe Chris Christie’s rude & pugnacious attitude didn’t filter down to the troops.

    That…monster! No, not the one shambling out of the basement, we mean Stephen King. See, Team Twitchy caught King in a lie: He wrote about Chris Christie, but he completely failed to write about Barack Obama.

    Sigh. Oh sweetie. The lack of Obama-awareness is staggering.

    Seriously, kids, they have nine paid bloggers.

    And so the brave Twitchers struck back, calling King to task for talking about one thing, but not the other thing that they really think is far, far worse:



    This is a pretty good game! Hey, Stephen King, why did you write a novel about people in a small town trapped under a force field and unable to get help from outside, instead of a novel about a tyrannical president that stands by and does nothing while terrorists attack brave Americans trapped in an embassy and unable to get the help they need, because the tyrant stands by, watching it all unfold while doing gay sex, but not sending help, and then lying about it, and is a gay muslim socialist? THAT would be a good novel.

    Stupid Stephen King. If he were a good writer, he’d have been assassinated by Barack Obama, just like Andrew Breitbart and Tom Clancy were.

    I think they made some interesting points (pablos post) but I certainly do not like the weird and counter-productive name calling they used. Either way people are allowed their own opinion but I really do not like when people make statements like this group did.

    King published a lengthly text about it on his facebook page

    Those of you who follow Twitter will know that recently I managed to put my foot in my mouth and halfway down my throat. A good many people came away from my tweet about the Woody Allen controversy with the idea that I had called Dylan Farrow or Mia Farrow (or both) a bitch. That wasn’t my intention, but the conclusion on the part of some readers is understandable. I used the wrong word to describe not Ms. Farrow—either Ms. Farrow—but a sad and painful mess. Some people seem to believe that writers never use the wrong word, but any editor can tell you that’s not true.

    Those of you who have read my work—Carrie, Dolores Claiborne, Rose Madder, and Lisey’s Story, to name four—will know that I have plenty of respect for women, and care about the problems and life-situations they face. My single-mom mother faced plenty, believe me. And I have no sympathy whatever for those who abuse children. I wrote about such abuse—and its ultimate cost to the victim—in Gerald’s Game.

    The maximum number of letters in a Tweet is 140. I think the following would fit: I apologize for screwing up.

    Just know my heart is where it’s always been: in the right place.

    Over 60 types like King probably don't realize that the net is not the best place to vent their personal opinions on controversial topics if they don't want to stir the pot. If you say the sky is blue, someone will respond with a tirade about global warming. That's not to defend King who I think has really said some questionable things. He should give it a rest and stick to talking about what people want to hear from him - his books and stories.

    I like how he defended himself by pointing to certain books and stories - he wouldn't be able to do that if he'd made it a policy to hide what people don't want to hear. Interestingly, personal values of writers is a key question in this central controversy itself. Here's an article I appreciate a lot: http://thinkprogress.org/alyssa/2014...1/woody-allen/

    @StephenKing: Oooo, right-wingers mad about Obamacare tweets. They're the ones who think the earth is 6000 years old. THAT'S scary.

    Don't care that he supports the affordable care act, but this isn't how to defend your position. Not going to follow him anymore.
