Congratulations to author Matt Debenham (@debenham) for becoming PW’s 100,000th Twitter follower! Debenham is the author of a new fiction collection, The Book of Right & Wrong, winner of the Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction, and a Pushcart nominee; we couldn’t be happier for him to help us reach this milestone. We’re giving Debenham a lifetime subscription to PW, and we invite any and all to follow our Twitter feed, @publisherswkly, where we keep you up to date all day long on the events taking place in the publishing business.
“Earlier this year, when we broke the story of PW’s purchase by PWxyz, via Twitter, I was inundated by interview requests and well wishes from long-dormant contacts in book publishing,” notes PW owner George Slowik Jr. “We knew then that PW’s Twitter reach could electrify the press and publishing world. By devoting around the clock attention to all the news of publishing, we have optimized this asset and grown it threefold. Twitter has become an important part of our news delivery team.”
