Not Me

I see from the internet that I made a hilarious tweet on Mother's Day, trolling my readers.

It's good to know that I'm so funny. Except...
(1) I don't troll my readers, and,
(2) I don't do Twitter (my minions tweet echoes of what I post here),
(3) it wasn't me.


But really boys and girls, don't believe everything you read on the internet.

PS from the MINIONS: #GRRMinion is what you'll see when its one of us on Social Media or here on Live Journal, and ONLY @GRRMspeaking Tweets are from the Fevre River office. Thanks from the Minions-

It is known...
I've learned the hard way that if I dont see it here, I can't belive its true.

Though there was a post on a seemingly verified you twitter account a few weeks ago that had me puzzled... I was sure you didn't use twitter!

Regardless, you are a funny man... at least I can chuckle reading some Tyrion chapters :)

Re: It is known...
There is a verified GRRM twitter, it is @GRRMspeaking. But George doesn't use it himself, his assistants use it to just re-post the articles from this blog.

Should I Believe this post, then?

Yes, that's the whole point.

The gangling steward backed away, his hands upraised as if to say, Not Me, I don't troll my readers, and I don't do twitter. It wasn't me.

There's a popular parody account of you on Twitter that a lot of people mistake as your real Twitter account. You would think it's obvious that it's not your actual account considering the content but alas...

Very grateful
I can imagine it would be easy to get sick of some of the idiotic comments you must get daily, and the largely anonymous internet provides a great platform for people to be their worst.

I just want to thank you so much for creating something that I love so much; I adore the world you've created and I'm massively grateful to you.

Much and more
Heh, you'd be surprised at the lengths people go to attribute something to you and generate more clicks for their tabloid websites. I suppose you already know it by now as well, but some weeks ago there was an image of a fake tweet floating around, seemingly by your official Twitter account, giving a hint about the bastard's parents: it said their names rhymed with "Schmobert Schmaratheon" and "Schmatelyn Schmark". Not only people actually believed it was you who tweeted, they also thought that its content was possible in the story because of that. The Internet really is dark and full of hoaxes.

I tend to believe what is written on this LJ page, as it is linked to your official site. I wonder if someone ghosting your supposed presence on Twitter et al is something to be amused or bemused by?

Was your....
... account hacked? If it was one of your "minions", I am very much available for you to replace that one ;)

Re: Was your....
No, no hack. Wasn't my account.

i know you don't use twitter, because i always send mentions and you never reply :'(

george, taking advantage of this post content - and if i am not being inconvenient too -, is there any chance of jon's mother be a certain person in the books and in the tv show be another one?!

these internet forums are destroying my life.

There's no Willy Wonka style golden ticket in one of your books to win the right to finish writing them for you?? Dangit...

In fairness...
I think we need your definition of "troll" before we should believe you don't troll your readers. ;)
