“If you believe S. E. Hinton is engaging in abusive behavior on Twitter, you may report S. E. Hinton for spam.”

Oh, technology.

First, the autocorrect on my phone changed “S.E. Hinton” to “S.E. Hilton”, making me look like I was clueless about one of my students’ favorite authors as I posted about her on Twitter. Then, I get an email from Twitter giving me an option to report the queen of YA for SPAM abuse.

But then I think about a benefit of instant access through technology: I was able to go back and forth with one of Young Adult literature’s finest. She was friendly and had guessed that it was an autocorrect error.

She’s at se4realhinton on Twitter. Give her a message.
