Talking of Twitter (I’m stupidly bored today), there was a report about the local police and the calls they have to answer on TV yesterday. Now some nice lady had phone the police (yes, phoned the police) to report being harassed on Twitter.Posted 8 years ago
I don’t think any further typing is necessary.
Boringly predictable picture posted by boringly predictable stationary salesman to demonstrate just how boringly predictable he is. 🙄
There’s a right tosser for you: @deadlydarcy.
Generally, comedians are good…Dara O’Briain, Alan Davies, Jimmy Carr, etc. I use it to contact my local MP and though I’m no fan of hers, she always replies. Some good political figures to follow too: your MP, Alastair Campbell. And plenty of cyclists tweet: Cav, Bradley, Thor etc.Posted 8 years agomatthewjbSubscriber
It’s good way to get some unguarded comments from people.
For cycling I follow Cav and Brad Wiggins.
I also follow a few journalists. It’s good way of finding out breaking news and gossip. Giles Coren (@gilescoren) is entertaining.
And then some comedians like Richard Herring (@herring1967)Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
I follow a few authors like William Gibson and Cory Doctorow, a bunch of writers from Tunisia, Yemen, Japan and various ‘interesting’ parts of the world, and some musicians.Posted 8 years ago

@dick_barton – not got much of value but every now and again (literally now and again!), I come out with a gem…think last one was about 3 months ago so I’m surely due one shortly…
Don’t follow the rich and famous – figure as I don’t follow them on tv, no point wasting my time with them there…follow other bikers/folk I know and other diabetics…my postings are completely random in lot of cases…if you do follow me, standby to be underwhelmed!Posted 8 years agostevemtbMember
I wasn’t sure about it before I signed up but definitely converted now.
You only follow the people or groups you are interested in so should only receive tweets you want to see. Can be very useful for events, people like NoFuss are pretty good at offering info you wouldn’t normally get via Twitter.
Then there’s the famous folks, people like Cav post up some great stuff that they probably shouldn’t. He’s pretty new to it and was pretty much told to by HTC I think, definitely a few tweets sent in the heat of the moment which gives thoughts you wouldn’t hear in the normal interviews when he’s calmed down.
If you follow people you are interested in I think most people would enjoy it.Posted 8 years agoiDaveMember
You may as well just shout inane things into the street from your front door.
Interesting that your opinion suggests you have no idea what twitter is. It’s quite similar to saying mobile phones are crap because you read once that someone used one to say something stupid.
What if someone was shouting insightful, funny or pertinent information from their front door? Would it be OK then?
Like everything in life, if you seek shite you’ll find it, but it’s your choice.Posted 8 years ago
