How Larry King Tweets and a Few Other Things

In this Washington Post piece about television and radio host Larry King, we learn, e.g., the reason why he came out of retirement, what a typical day looks like and how passionately he feels for his work, but also about King's unusual style of sending tweets:

When Larry King wants to tweet, he doesn’t log onto the Internet. He pops open the flip phone stored in the shirt pocket between his suspender straps and calls the number for a voicemail set up specifically for this purpose. Then he dictates a thought that will be picked up by an assistant and transcribed onto his @KingsThings Twitter account. And nearly 2.6 million followers are there to receive it.
