Best,

I’m sure they’ll get on famously.

Oh, right, I probably didn’t mention, did I, that George Orwell has joined Twitter? An act of whimsy following my mention of Twitter in my post about the Orwell Diaries. Will keep it going for as long as I keep it going (or until the Orwell Trust injuncts me).

    You do realise you’ve just opened yourself up to a hail of Snowballs, don’t you?

  2. Phil Walker says:

    Well, not just Snowballs, of course. I shouldn’t be surprised if a Napoleon didn’t add you to the list. Perhaps a Winston Smith or two, as well.
