In the WD backpage humor column Platforms of Yore, we dream up the social media accounts of classic authors desperate to build their online platforms. Today, January 7, 2017, is the 150th birthday of Little House on the Prairie author Laura Ingalls Wilder—so it only seems fitting that we remember her through her imagined tweets, Facebook posts and Instagram photos, courtesy of the September 2016 Writer’s Digest.
