Stephenie Meyer, infamous author of the best-selling, vampire romance series, Twilight, announced on her website that she’s kicking her social networking page, MySpace, into touch.
"It was a lot of fun while it lasted, and I really miss the early days when I could hang out with people online," Meyer wrote. "Many of you are hilarious and insightful, and I wish it was easier for me to talk to everyone the way I used to."
Wow! There’s nothing quite like biting the hand that feeds you!
Stephenie Meyer will probably protest that I’m wrong, but I was led to understand that one of the reasons behind her tremendous and unlikely, leap to fame was due to her presence on MySpace. She apparently milked the system by invoking the viral effect that can sometimes come from such public exposure. She used it to promote her work. She found the right buttons to press.
Bully for you, Stephenie, you obviously feel you’re above all that now – after all, when you reach your position, who needs fans.
Well, I’m here to tell you folk, I’M not about to leave FaceBook. If you want to partake of a few words as my FaceBook friend, then feel free. I welcome one and all.
