Twitter ye not!

June 11th, 2009 · Posted by Skuds in Politics/Technology · No Comments · Politics, Technology

Today I logged into Twitter for the first time.  I have avoided it thus far because I can’t really see the appeal.  It looks like the sort of thing that is only going to be worthwhile if it is used on a mobile – and I don’t use my mobile for internet use at all.  The reason I took the plunge today is that Jonathan alerted me to an account on there called realnickgriffin.  Read Jonathan’s post for the details, but it really is quite funny.It is a bit like the Private Eye spoofs (Idi Amin’s diary for example) done in 140-character chunks.  I probably couldn’t sum it up any better than Jonathan who says its “like a racist Adrian Mole” and cannot recommend it highly enough for a bit of a laugh.  I am now following it – I believe that is the terminology they use on this new-fangled Twitter thing.

I’m sure there will be the usual accusations of ‘dirty tricks’ from the BNP, but this is good old-fashioned satire and as the feed itself points out “we’re a legitimate mainstream party now, son. that means we’re fair game for satire”
