I do NOT have a Twitter account

October 16, 2011 in Uncategorized | Comments (9)


I was asked today whether I have a Twitter account. Apparently someone is tweeting under the name ‘ghoshamitav’.

I would like it to be known that this is not me: I do not have a Twitter account and have not been sending out tweets.

    I already followed you. And then upon Jonathan Shainin’s alerting, unfollowed too.

    I think you can join twitter. Other literary titans already have. Just my two cents.

    Dear Mr Ghosh,

    As much as I would love to be able to squeal at you in (some sort of) person the next time you close a book with half its most-beloved characters drifting out in the middle of a storm and no way to know whether they’re alive or dead until the next book comes out, please stay away from Twitter. Her is non hoom; her nis but wildernesse.

    We would love to see you on Twitter if you ever want to join! I love Sea of Poppies and Hungry Tide. There are not many books I reread, but those I do.
