I’ve had occasion to dabble in social networking sites before but a recent visit to a top 10 things about stuff sites featured alongside top changes 2009 (only 8 so far – what is the world coming to) was top people to follow on twitter.
twitter twat tweets

Twitter it seems is a melange of blogging, facebook and text messaging whereby those full of their own self importance can give regular updates about their amazing lives for all to share. Twitting is refered to as microblogging – now theres a fluffy way of saying lazy word shy bluggers.  Who’d have thought anyone would be able to express themselves in 14o character bursts.  More to the point who would subscribe to these snippets of drivel?

Amongst the top twitters to follow are Stephen Fry and Jonathon Ross – two unlikely bedfellows. Stephen Fry is undoubtabley one of Britains finest gentlemen – urbane, educated, witty and charming.  Tossy however is merely a potty mouthed sycophantic oik who used to be entertaining but developed a speech impediment due to build up of boot polish on his tongue. Harsh perhaps but I offer further insight into the , smug and crass tv personality courtesy of the Daily Telegraph who report that:

Jonathon Ross is a sleazy, self-indulgent, foul-mouthed, middle-aged doppelgänger of a man who had the potential to be one of our most brilliant broadcasters and worth every penny of £18 million. Now it is as if he feels he must compete with the worst excesses of Julian Clary and Graham Norton; he leaves viewers feeling grubby at best, and sickened at worst.

By following a twit you get to read each and every mundane activity the twitterer thinks is noteworthy this morning I noticed that Wossy signed off –

  1. I am going to take a nap. Twitter exhaustion.

If only he opted for retirement – from being an exhausting twat.

Benefits of Twitter

I can understand the interest in some of these diaries – hopefully it will see the end to half baked nobodies publishing autobiographies within a year of achieving some sort of dubious celebrity status.

Call to action on climate change

I’m no stranger to social networking – you can find pasty muncher on Linkedin, and fundraising pages (remember the sponsored fart for the heart?) – see the current climate change page which has yet to see any charity donation be made.  Perhaps this is the key to Twitter – with a good following and a smart fundraising idea it could be a lucrative source of getting sponsorship and donations.

Why ask for charity donations?

Following the previous post welcoming global warming I saw this climate change video and did a tad more reasearch which revealed that sceptisism, consiracy theory and frivolity are all very well but climate change is really happening and its happening now.

Will you see Pasty Muncher on Twitter?

Well its tempting to play with scocial media sites – enormous fun having a profile and many friends on facebook but sadly http://twitter.com/pastymuncher is already taken – and following Stephen Fry – should I compromise..?

Maybe there will be a better version of Twitter developed soon – Muncher
