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, March 2, 2017, prolific children’s author Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel would have celebrated his 113th birthday—so it only seems fitting that we remember him through his imagined tweets, Facebook posts and Instagram photos, courtesy of the February 2017 Writer’s Digest.
