William Shakespeare Is Now Following You

So this happened. I checked my email to see the following notification: “William Shakespearis now following you on Twitter!” 

Correct me if I am in error, but I think that’s a pretty high-profile follower. Not bad for a poet-blogger who’s been on hiatus for most of National Poetry Month. Eh?

If only he didn’t tweet so much about football. All I know about football (like American Soccer) is that the scenery is nice and the uniforms are rather attractive. To follow the sporty bard on Twitter just click here.
