Hey, look who's tweeting ― Alice Waters. Well, not technically (she hasn't published anything yet), though Alice did create a Twitter page yesterday afternoon, says David Prior, director of communications for the Chez Panisse Foundation. Alice's chicken and rooster avatar? Prior says it's from a vintage Czech poster Alice picked up in L.A. or something and just loves. Plus, since Twitter's symbol is a bird, she thought it'd be particularly apt to upload chickens.
And, says Prior, his voice taking on that cagey, I-know-a-secret-but-can't-tell-you tone, there's a reason Alice plans to start tweeting, beyond some urge to post twitpics of her garden. "It will all make sense Monday," Prior says, hinting that Alice is poised to tweet something really, really big. A Food Network show with Anthony Bourdain? A Chez Panisse fried chicken truck?
