    Steven Soderbergh Is (Probably) Tweeting A Novella

    It's called Glue, and it appears to be a hard-boiled European spy thriller.

    In a New York magazine interview earlier this year, Steven Soderbergh said he had a "shadow" account on Twitter.

    Twitter: @Bitchuation

    A few days later, Collider's Steven Weintraub said Soderbergh confirmed to him that the account is @Bitchuation. It's unverified by Twitter, but the photo attached to the profile certainly looks like Soderbergh.

    Late on Sunday, @Bitchuation started tweeting a novella called Glue. It started with two epigraphs, and then started in on the novella. Here is the first chapter in full.

    “I am a human being, so nothing human is strange to me.” Terentius
