Sort-of news?

I have finally caved, and joined Twitter. So...er, for things briefer, less important and more ephemeral than this blog...um, do whatever people do on Twitter, to me. I guess? This is me.

I honestly do not know what Twitter is...but far be it from me to act like an individual.

I Twitter therefore I am, I think you'll find Ben. Or perhaps not.

It is one of the most over-rated communication devices since the Palm Pilot.

My brother-in-law was raving about twitter

I don't get it

I also don't get 'Deal or No Deal'

You should get Ben to explain 'Deal or No Deal' - he was on it and won money, so apparently he knows how it works.

By the way Ben if you are going to use Twitter you should download something like "Twitterific" (yes, I know, the names are just awful) and leave it sitting on on your computer desktop. Then it responds as soon as someone you are following (and I still think that is a really creepy term) adds a message. If you have to keep remembering to open the Twitter web site itself all the time you miss out on the instant messaging (perhaps its only virtue) aspect of Twitter. By the way there are people ("Twits") who compete to acquire the most followers on Twitter. Sometimes newspapers produce lists of such claims to fame which only encourages them. Try to avoid followers who appear out of nowhere.
