Martin, who has numerous parody and impersonator social media accounts, had his publisher confirm the account’s authenticity.

“Are you following a #GRRM impersonator?” Random House tweeted. “We can officially announce that @GRRMspeaking is the real deal (though he won’t be tweeting much)…”

The author started off his first day on Twitter by following 15 other users — mostly stars from the HBO show.
