Whenever I hear anyone talk about
Presenters on TV or radio sometimes look/sound uncomfortable talking about
I still struggle to understand how it’s integrated itself into everyday life. Especially when half a segment on tv/radio is taken up by someone spouting about who has
tweeted messaged who, and who has said what, in their own little z-list ‘celeb’ world: “Tweet us. Follow us. Re-Tweet us”. No. Stop talking nonsense.

It took me an age to ‘get’ Facebook (even though the love affair and divorce with MySpace preceded it); it took me an age to ‘get’ this blogging thing too and it’s also taken me an age to ‘get’ tw……, but until it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling I doubt I will.
If it had a better name it might be easier to let it slide (what’s wrong with a catchy name, like: “that site that lets you send messages of up to 140 characters dot com”?).
Until then, I’m just pretending it doesn’t happen.
