A few months ago, I suggested the idea of giving your main character their own email account:
Recently, I’ve been exploring Twitter, seeking out Colony members and Crime genre authors and literary agents who like crime novels. I intended to use this personal account to make contacts and to promote myself and my Cornish Detective series in a non-pushy way.
My Twitter presence morphed from a Facebook Author page called Paul Pens, which is based on threads I started on The Colony. Last autumn, I started a Facebook business page devoted to my Cornish Detective series. Why not give my fictional hero a Twitter account too?
I searched for advice online, finding this dated article:
Apparently, Twitter verifies the accounts of fictional characters, though this article is from 2012:

Have any of you given your MC a Twitter account?
Do you follow any fictional characters
