Alex (asato) Maybe one tweet doesn't make you an author, but over time and in combination with other publishing media--like blogging--you can become an influencer, right?
"The number of published authors per year increased nearly tenfold every century for six centuries. By 2000, there were 1 million book authors per year. One million authors is a lot, but they are only a tiny fraction, 0.01 percent, of the nearly 7 billion people on Earth. Since 1400, book authorship has grown nearly tenfold in each century. Currently, authorship, including books and new media, is growing nearly tenfold each year."

Marie Silk | 1020 comments Haha I thought it meant 140 characters, as in, main characters. I was going to say yes, that definitely makes you an author.
