The Twits

thetwits

Last week in The Guardian Jackie Ashley wrote about Twitter and caused a bit of a storm by dismissing the whole Twitterverse.

It appeared Jackie didn’t quite the point. She’s not alone in that.  The British newspaper industry is stuffed full of people who don’t get the internet and the way it’s changing our habits.

The best response I’ve read is from Graham Linehan, creator of Father Ted and Twitter stalwart.

The Conversation brilliantly sums up what Twitter is about in all its power and its pointlessness, its seriousness and its humour.

If you know nothing about Twitter (especially, but not only, if you’re also a leading commentator on a national newspaper) please have a read and take note.
