Noted: Stephen King joins Twitter

But the prolific author seems to be at loss for words

Twitter just got a whole lot scarier. Horror author Stephen King has signed up, with a bio that lists him simply as “author” and links to his website.

It’s a pretty humble description for the best-selling author of more than 50 books.

King made his debut with two tweets:

If King is looking for Twitter inspiration, he may want to take a tip or two from R.L. Stine, the author who writes the Goosebumps series and other scary stories for kids. Stine is also a prolific tweeter who uses the social media service to tell stories, talk about upcoming projects and tweet links about monkey brains.
