Escapology Microblog

I’ve spoken very disparagingly in the past about Twitter. “A vicious little technology,” I called it in Issue Three.

Yet here I am, setting up an account. It’ll be used to announce blog updates; to retweet any chatter about New Escapologist online; and to post any links to Escapology-related interviews or guest posts we do elsewhere.

That’s not a big deal is it? If it gets to be too much, becomes distracting or begins to have a corrupting influence over what we do, I’ll kill it.

Follow us @NewEscapologist if you want to. Smash the system! In 140 characters or fewer.

I may live to regret this. I’m embarrassed already.
