She created the Twitter account to "“to see what kind of potential Twitter had to build brand without being obvious.”[1] AMC's lawyers did not approve of her Twitter account; she received an "account suspended" notice from Twitter shortly after she started tweeting, but after her Twitter fans protested, her account was reinstated.[2]
