|Do you believe I got on Twitter over ten years ago?? Do you believe there even was a Twitter ten years ago? I had some good times there, especially in the early days, before anyone even really figured out what the hell the place was about.
But after almost 50,000 tweets, I decided it was time to wrap it up and be done. The @joe_hill account has been placed in the loving hands of my publishers in the U.S. and the U.K., who will continue to use it to supply you with vital, desperately needed information about my forthcoming fiction and future appearances.

As for why I got off Shitter — er, Twitter — nothing I could say about the place would be as interesting as what Jaron Lanier has to say about it in his fine, one-sitting read, Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Now (advice, as you can see, I’m only half-taking — if I had the true courage of convictions I’d cancel the account outright, y’know?).
