Stephen King finally gets with the times and joins Twitter.

Horror legend and overall bad ass, Stephen King, has finally signed up for Twitter. Yeah, I’ve already started to follow him.

Want to see Stephen King’s first tweet? Check it out!

My first tweet. No longer a virgin. Be gentle!

Apparently, someone besides the man himself had control over the @StephenKing username. Originally, Stephen King’s Twitter username was @StephenKingAuth, but it was changed to @StephenKing shortly after. Apparently, the user that had control over the @StephenKing username wasn’t using the account anymore and it ended up in the hands of the horror legend. That’s the only explanation we can come up with, anyways.

Shortly after signing up for the service, Stephen King received a blue checkmark beside of his username, which means that it’s a verified account and actually owned by King himself.

Unfortunately, much like his character Jack from The Shining, Stephen King suffered the same ill fate when he signed up for Twitter.

Stephen King gets writer’s block.

On Twitter at last, and can’t think of a thing to say. Some writer I turned out to be.

Stephen King may be new to Twitter, but it’s better to show up late than never. I’m definitely glad to see King embracing the awesomeness of Twitter and I’m more than happy to follow the man.

…And I’m not alone. Stephen King sent out his very first tweet only 20 hours ago and already has nearly 130k followers.

Welcome to Twitter, Mr. King.
