im quitting twitter because i don’t understand how twitter helps anyone do anything

3. Unfortunately, @JoanDidion was never run by the National Book Award winner. It’s an ad guy inspired by her, as is mentioned pretty prominently in the bio.

4. So it was a bit awkward when the Wall Street Journal reported on the account as though it were actually Joan Didion.

5. I know, right?

 

6. The Wall Street Journal quickly posted an updated version of the article with a correction.

7. And then Fake Joan was like….

WSJ... lol....
