Stephen Fry has threatened to abandon Twitter because some poor sod called his tweets 'a bit boring'. Said spa was then attacked by about 10000 Fry followers all trying to out do themselves over how much of a real friend they are to poor SF.
God, it's a needy medium.
I'm confident this will be on the Guardian website in a couple of hours.
The worst thing about the Chomsky talk last night was Creepy Crawley trying to get him to use Twitter and going on about how amazing it would be. Chomsky clearly wasn't interested. It was just very very cringeworthy.
"It was just very very cringeworthy." Appropriately enough like 99% of what is posted on Twitter.
And they're off!
Thank God the poor lamb never frequented FF.
Why doesn't Stephen Fry just fuck off, the 3 chinned, luvvie bastard? No-one has a bad word to say about him? I do, if he's so smart, why is he so ubiquitous on our nation's TV screens?
I notice he didn't tweet about the time he lost it on the ferry to Zeebrugge.
99.9% of all twitter output is boring, it's almost that way by design.
You only receive the tweets of people you choose to follow, so it's exactly as useful/relevant/interesting as you want it to be.
If yer man found him boring, why was he following him?
Follow http://twitter.com/themime instead.
its not the concept of twitter i have issues with (well, I think holding conversations via it is crap), my main bone of contention is the twats who've never used computers before going on and on and on about how fucking amazing it is, revolutionary, etcetc
