Did Cormac McCarthy Join Twitter? Nope.
No, Cormac McCarthy did not join Twitter.
But a lot of people thought he did. Like, the nearly 3,000 people who followed @CormacCMcCarthy today, a feed dispensing bon mots like this:

The only person "McCarthy" followed back was Margaret Atwood, and the feed featured a series of tweets that were just weird enough that maybe--just maybe!--it was really him.
Alas, it was not.
Vintage & Anchor sent out the following tweet, in response to intrepid publishing reporter Sarah Weinman.
Not to worry, @sarahw, he doesn't own a computer; we've verified the @CormacCMcCarthy handle is not the real deal.
So, there you go. Cormac McCarthy doesn't own a computer.
Such a shame though. I want to live in a world where McCarthy uses Twitter. Maybe someday...
