George RR Martin’s First Tweet?

At 8:30 this morning, “George RR Martin” (@_GRRM_) had almost 4000 followers, followed no one, and had just sent out his first tweet.

George RR Martin's Twitter Account - 8:37 a.m.

Remarkable. Especially given the fact that the account does not belong to George RR Martin.

By 12:00 p.m., the number of followers had increased to almost 5,000, but the profile had been amended to reflect that the account was a George RR Martin fan account.

It’s still a funny tweet, but this really is a testament about how quickly social media can change.
