Twitter and social media in general

Good golly Miss Molly, you have all taken your time to get here. Twitter has finally arrived mainstream and all the attendant nonsense is starting to appear. The words 'craze' and 'passing fad' are absent just now but for how long ? I have been on Twitter for a wee while. Cycling through Finland last summer, it was great to keep in touch with the local weather. However, now it seems to be turning into part stalker, part compulsion and part 'the next big thing'. Everyone I know seems to want to follow Stephen Fry. He's a nice guy but I am not just that nosey. And maybe I'm not that online. Anyhow, I am clearing a space in the garage for my Twitter accounts; the CB radio, the Rubic Cube and the hula hoops will have to make way.
