I emailed Bob Ryan earlier this morning after reading about his upcoming retirement. I asked the Boston Globe columnnist about his decision and what’s going on with his Twitter account. He tells Romenesko readers:
[Any tweeting] you see under my name is bogus. I have never tweeted, and honestly don’t know how. I have been plotting this for at least two years. It’s simply time. But there will be an after-life of some sort. I’m trying to piece it together now. The only thing I’m ruling out is writing in direct competition with the globe. I won’t do that.
