Great Authors To Follow On Twitter

By Taylor Smith

The wonderful thing about following your favorite writers on Twitter is that they suddenly become relatable. They are people with opinions, a sense of humor, and a life outside of their writing duties.

Twitter enables Joyce Carol Oates’ cat to deliver her opinion on the latest movies. Suddenly, Susan Orlean is instagramming photos of her farm and Stephen King is announcing his views on Donald Trump.

It is a quirky world, but one worth watching.
