  • @TommyTudehope That's true but I don't know of anyone else who does it quite so systematically – and just about every day. #
  • @TommyTudehope They both stand out because they're pretty much on their own. #
  • @TommyTudehope It's the same with media people – most jump on the bandwagon but just chat to their colleagues. Few offering real content. #
  • @TommyTudehope It's forced an almost total readjustment of Twitter usage for me compared to say a year ago. Immediacy vs value. #
  • @TommyTudehope Hard to say – if I wasn't sitting at a desk most days I suspect I might not use it much at all. #
  • @jaseygalore There are enemies everywhere, you know. You'd be grumpy too. #
  • @TommyTudehope I suppose the thing that's most irksome these days is the aggro, the spats and the sloganeering. Harder to avoid now. #

  • @andrew_hedge I couldn't vouch for the details but I remember the vigorous opposition to .05 legislation and compulsory seat belts. #
  • @laceyhd Yes, it just jumped out at me too. A cut-through criticism. #
  • @andrew_hedge Consider extended and weekend trading hours, or the end of 6 o'clock closing – vested interests for and against throughout. #
  • @andrew_hedge I remember having to write an argumentative essay about it in Year 10! #

  • @lapuntadelfin But how can I possibly explain to my friends that I read both? #
