He was just on The One Show earlier as twitted. Very good. I might follow him. What ever that involves. How did you find him on it? Good find.

Just click "Follow."

Not sure how Athena found him. But, coincidentally, I got an email from a contact at Puffin today asking if I had noticed he was on Twitter.

Thank you. Might be a few tasty tip bits coming out from his tweets, maybe an exclusive in the future. Fingers crossed. B)

Looks like David Arnold and Charlie follow each other. That's pretty neat.

I was following myself on Twitter but I might fire it back up just to follow Charlie. How does the messaging work? You post on your twitter page @blah and if blah is following you they will read it?

David Arnold is a crack up to follow!

athenastamos: @monstroso You should ask him if he sees the funny side. Charlie Higson meet @DavidGArnold ...now tweet your little hearts out! 1:18 AM Jan 15th

DavidGArnold: @athenastamos what are you, an online matchmaking agency? 2:22 AM Jan 15th

If you include @twitterusername that person will be able to see your message to them no mater if they are "following" you or you "following" them. The only way to have private communication is if you are both following each other. But posting @twitterusername is public communication that they can go into their "@" box and see. Ok, that was was more words than needed to describe that. Hope it helped!

Charlie is being very generous with info via his tweets:

new cover artwork for Enemy PB looking good. Going for very different look to hardback. Now all we have to do is get good idea for The Dead.

Man, if only he had this during the YB days.

Well... they're following each other now... something must be up!

Arf! He does look quite a lot like David Arnold! And bizarrely, when he's in the old man prosthetics: quite a lot like Harry Enfield! B)

Not worth starting a new thread for, but I see that Charlie has written the foreword for a new edition of a classic Doctor Who novel to be released in July; plus of course a new series of the brilliant Down the Line has just started on Radio 4.

Oh, cool, thanks. I missed that.

They need to hire Charlie to write an episode of Doctor Who.

Yeah, I saw that someone asked him about that and he knows Steven Moffat apparently; Charlie said that he'd love to do it but believes Moffat has him own team. Scary, funny... I can't think of a more perfect fit to be honest; they've got to ask him!

Down the Line was brilliant, by the way; well worth a listen!

Just to bring this thread back to life: in honour of the Skyfall premiere today @monstroso is live blogging the plots to Bond all day! It's brilliant stuff and he's dug out some pretty cool vintage Bond covers.
