I’ve never really taken to IM although I get some work done with it in the office from time to time. I thought LOL stood for lots of love until very recently which shows how naive i am. So i’m surprised at how taken in i’ve been with twitter.. At first it just seems so dumb. Public, permanent IM with added SMS. Banality to the extreme. But then you are drawn in and can’t stop. Its prurient, socially useful, and now with added bits and bobs like the BBC sport/news headlines (thanks Mario.) virtually the wallpaper to my day. All together now. “making coffee listening to Radio 4”.
