A friend emailed me to let me know “Mother Abigail” is now Tweeting.
That sentence may not make a whole lot of sense to you unless you’re read Stephen King’s “The Stand,” in which the survivors of a mysterious super flu nicknamed “Captain Trips” are drawn into a fight against good and evil. The good have dreams about a woman named Mother Abigail, who is 108 and lives in a Nebraska cornfield. The bad turn to Randall Flag, who draws them to (where else) Las Vegas.
Anyway, Mother Abigail is now Tweeting. I signed up to follow her and an hour later received a message:
Randall Flagg is now following you on Twitter!
Truly we live in interesting times. Whoever’s doing it has the speech patterns down pat!
