Susan Orlean Counters Dan Baum on Twitter

another_pic.jpgIn the wake of former New Yorker writer Dan Baum‘s Twitter essay about his unhappy time at the New Yorker, staff writer Susan Orlean objected with a short series of Twitter posts about her experience at the weekly magazine.

On her Twitter feed, Orlean wrote: “Contrary to [Baum], I don’t think The New Yorker office is a creepy place, nor is the atmosphere ‘strained.’ He seems WAY off to me.” She also objected to Baum’s description of a silent office environment.

Finally, Orlean hinted at a possible Twitter-essay in response to Baum, a tantalizing prospect for New Yorker readers: “Maybe I should do the un-@danielsbaum about how I got hired at the New Yorker; a counterpoint to his tweets about how he got fired.”
