Definitely don't DM on Twitter! I'd just send it to the PS Literary email, replying to the original query.

Via what platform should I send a nudge to Eric? Twitter DM, PS Literary email, or to his gmail?

Queried mid-March
Nudged mid-May (rejected)
I double checked with him via Twitter to make sure it was okay to nudge. After I nudged him, he replied quickly and explained that my genre (underworld story) isn't for him. It was brief but the most personalized rejection I've ever gotten. He's very kind and seems to want to respond to everyone, so I definitely recommend querying him.

I sent a second ER because I never got an automated reply, and I don't have one for the second either. I'm going to just forget about it now.

nudged 6/3/21 - replied "?Hey Alix! Thanks for checking in, nudges are always welcome. This feels a bit too epic in scope for me and the kind of projects I work on, I wouldn’t be the right fit for this. But I hope you find the perfect person to push your work forward! - Eric"

Despite the rejection, Eric wrote very specific, detailed feedback about why my story didn't connect with him. He got what I was going for and told me not to change it for him, but also he gave me ideas on how to change it if I ever wanted to consider alternatives to the story. A great guy to consider and to work with.
