(Casey Rodgers/AP Images for Target) (Newser) – Fans of Goosebumps author RL Stine—and the Bustle thinks this includes "every teen, twentysomething, and thirtysomething"—will want to tune in to his Twitter feed. Stine today promised this: "For Halloween, I'll be writing a story live on Twitter this evening. Hope you'll join me." He offered no other details, including what time the story-tweeting begins. For those unfamiliar with Stine, Mashable explains that the prolific 71-year-old is referred to as the "Stephen King of children's literature."
