tweet talking guy…

January 26th, 2010 // 12:43 pm @ // 4 Comments

As those amongst you who know me are doubtlessly aware, I’ve long been at the cutting edge of the technology that now forms a huge part of our daily lives. Steam locomotion, the internal combustion engine, even the fax machine, are just some of the things that I take in my stride. Today though marks another huge leap forward for me. I’ve activated a Twitter account, which apparently means I’m now best mates with the literati, or “twitterati” as those of us in the know call ourselves. Yes, I’m on first name terms with such luminaries as Stephen Fry, Barack Obama and Amanda Holden.

I’ve actually been resisting this development for quite some time but current wisdom suggests that success in almost every field is massively dependent on social networking. Or what we used to call meeting people and talking with them. Now I’m twittering though, I’m not entirely sure what I should tweet. I’ve had a quick look and it seems that what you had for breakfast is a fairly hot topic. As is what you watched on telly last night. And, apparently, the conjecture that Tracy is a slag.

Tracy, yesterday.

Obviously I need to approach this new medium with caution. Careless tweets cost credibility and all that. So, for now, I think I’ll just observe and get a feel for what is and isn’t done when twittering. I’ll take a look at what Stephen’s up to, check out Barack’s views and find out Amanda’s opinion on that whole Tracy situation. Then, when I’m fully informed I’ll tweet like no-one’s ever tweeted before. Until then, it’s probably not worth following me.

If you’re interested though, I had a bacon butty for breakfast, Nurse Jackie on BBC2 was pretty good and I can’t really say anything about Tracy till I’ve read a few more tweets.

Tweet as a nut.
