Terry Pratchett on twitter?

Postby foolsgold » Sun May 30, 2010 9:26 pm

Hello. I'm new to this forum (and the books, just read 'The Colour Of Magic' thought it was great so just bought 'The Light Fantastic')

I was just wondering if anyone knew this is the genuine Terry Pratchett on twitter http://twitter.com/terryandrob

Thanks. Dan. :)

Welcome! I confess I've never used Twitter, but it's nice to know Terry is out on the internet. I know he plays Half Life 2 - do you think he's on Steam?

Welcome, foolsgold.
Terry hasn't posted anything new on Twitter since May 2009.

If you have only just started reading Discworld, then you are in for a treat. :D

Sorry to *bump* this old thread, but didn't really want to start a new one. Does anyone know if there are any good DW/Pratchett Twitter feeds worth following? Or anything related...

I notice the one posted in this thread hasn't been used for nearly 2 years. :(

I've never Twitted in my life, so I have no idea. :(

No need to apologise for bumping an old thread. :wink:

:D And here I was about to welcome Dan. :D
Seriously..... even if TP posted on twitter his own personal self i wouldn't tweet.... can't stand it.

Teppic... feel free to bump... I love it when I see old threads that haven't been up before in my time.... just don't bump one that screams WELCOME TO OUR NEW MODERATOR! Some of the members here have weak hearts. :D
