George R.R. Martin Is Now On Twitter

Jun 10, 2014

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin joined Twitter Tuesday—shifting mediums from 864-page, seven (maybe eight?) part book series, to the svelte 140-character-or-less genre.

Martin's first tweet warned fans not to expect to much social media action:

(The live journal bit is not ironic—the author is very active on the older, more literary-inclined platform).

In spite of his warning, we still hope he live-tweets GOT episodes.
