Apparently some people have been tweeting a link to a recent post. These tweets (am I using the term properly?) seem to be driving a lot of traffic to the blog.
Twitter has amazing power: yesterday 1100 people read (or at least looked at) that post, and so far today 461 people have read it. It's not even a very good post (sorry, you 1600 visitors!). We had 1400 or so page views on the Literary Lab yesterday and our average is around 300. So I don't know how this happened and I'm not on Twitter so I can't really say anything intelligent about it. I merely remark upon the phenomenon. Also, thanks to whoever is doing the tweeting.
