Margaret Atwood gets in Twitter fight with Sue-Ann Levy over the TTC, of all things
Yesterday, the city’s never-ending transit saga sparked a bit of a Twitter tiff between Margaret Atwood and Toronto Sun columnist Sue-Ann Levy. It started with Atwood tweeting her dismay over last week’s sacking of TTC chief Gary Webster. Levy snarkily replied, “When was the last time you took the subway Ms. Megs? Now you’re an expert on the TTC?” Atwood, who knows her way around a verbal smackdown, responded with a terse set of instructions followed by a devastating emoticon: “Do your research, learn to read, address folks by their names, & cite sources for your insults. If you’re serious, that is. :)” It’s probably a fair bet that Atwood was about as chuffed about “Ms. Megs” as she was about “La Poodle” back in August.
