It hardly seems like it should be news. And yet.

On December 6th, iconic author Stephen King (Carrie, The Shining) uttered his first tweet:

“No longer a virgin,” King tweeted. “Be gentle!”

“On Twitter at last,” he tweeted later that day, “and can’t think of a thing to say. Some writer I turned out to be.”

Within 90 minutes, King had 30,000 followers. A few days later, nearly 175,000 followers.

King’s most recent novel, Dr. Sleep, was published by Scribner in September.
