There’s no love lost between Jonathan Franzen and Twitter: He’s belittled it and ridiculed it, and the Twitterverse has returned the favor, with the mocking hashtag #jonathanfranzenhates and @emperorfranzen. That’s why the celebrated novelist would be an excellent addition to the Twitterverse. It’s time to bury the hatchet. Consider Franzen’s latest dismissal of Twitter:
“it’s like if Kafka had decided to make a video semaphoring The Metamorphosis.” A perfect tweet right there. Maybe it’d be even better if he stayed on the offensive.
