It is with some chagrin that I make this announcement, but here goes: Got Medieval’s on Twitter, too, dammit. And I was so enjoying being oh-so-above-it. But the Twitter, she’s been good to me of late, so I really can’t pretend it makes sense to continue holding out on her.
I imagine that when medievalists decide to make the Twitter plunge they often quote a few lines from The Parliament of Fowls, you know, all blossomy bows and birds singing in angel-voiced harmony and so on, but I feel rather a bit like Chaucer in The House of Fame when the eagle swoops down:

Withyn hys sharpe nayles longe,
Me, fleynge, in a swap he hente,
And with hys sours ayen up wente,
Me caryinge in his clawes starke
As lyghtly as I were a larke.
