Bob Dylan is now on Twitter. I wonder if I'll understand his tweets, cuz I sure can't decipher what he's saying when he sings.

Yes but will anyone understand his tweets? RT @BobDylanTweets: Joining Twitter today. First time.

Ha! Some snark-wondered if the account really is Bob Dylan’s:
If @Bobdylantweets is real, it may be the first time I'll be able to understand what he's saying.

We will wait for the blue “Verified” check mark. In the meantime, the hashtag is still a ton of fun. So there’s that?
Story over? Or more to come?
