We now have a Twitter feed that notifies you if When Fangirls Attack has been updated.

This, in addition to the regular feed, the livejournal feed, and the insanejournal feed, should ensure that YOU don't miss a single update, even during those long periods of time Kalinara's memorizing every word ever written by Oliver Wendell Holmes and I'm sitting on my ass watching Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes as we both discuss the habits of H. H. Holmes over AIM.
