Temple Grandin Joins Twitter

Temple Grandin, the autistic doctor who revolutionized animal sciences and whose life story became an Emmy-winning HBO movie last year, has started on Twitter.
Tweeting under the name TempleG2697, her new account — opened two weeks ago — reads simply:
“Hello. My name is Temple Grandin, it’s very nice to meet you.”


  1. I think it's a hoax. Read the comments:

    "umm... I think this is a hoax? the tweeter she is conversing with is clearly the fictional character from Mark's Haddon's book - Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime (who opened an account on the same day)... and all the pictures are of clare danes, not temple...."

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to look into this.
