10,000 followers/nearly 8,000 tweets. If composer Nico Muhly sets any Twitter records they’re unconventional ones: sheer breadth of topics, perhaps, or best comedic delivery of esotery (“Ooh I actually got to use the phrase ‘etruscan lesbianism’ as part of natural conversation”).

And these are mostly from the past month or so (!):

“Without googling it who can tell me where Bemidji might be”

“Has nobody commissioned Dale Chihuly to make a Glass Cthulhu?”

“Why did you let me enter a mongolian dubstep wormhole”

“So by daylight it appears as if a wedge of parmesan met a grisly death by microplaner right here in the breakfast nook”

“Something v upsetting about the phrase Montezuma’s Yummy Mummy”

“Weird when people’s email signature is ‘You must do the thing you think you cannot do.’ – Eleanor Roosevelt”

“Is there a word for an erotic fixation on compressed air?”

“Open call for pictures of the ugliest sanctus bells”

“Is it a thing where people come over ur house & fix all the buttons on coats and busted seams? Am I thinking about literal Rumplestiltskin”

“I am in a very diacritical subdivision of alphabet city”

“If you make this concert happen, I will eat the meat-object of your choosing.”

“U know ur desperate when u google ‘best haemul pajun 52nd street'”

“Sometimes I aspire to that kind of manic focus a border collie has”

“I’m in that weird area of bed bath and beyond where it’s discount Bonne Maman preserves and nut milks”

“Envisioning a Jónsi/Beyoncé hybrid ‘Bjónsé'”
