Twittery

16 March 2007

I have a serious post on Twitter to come in future, but as its Friday, here’s something in incredibly poor taste. Inspired by doctorvee‘s tireless Grand Prix commentary late last night, I got thinking – what would Twitter’s coverage of important world events look like? I imagine something like…

utterly brilliant. i found out about twitters a few weeks ago and have been desperate to ignore tem, but I’ve realized I’m way outnumbered. this is the future of bad live blogging in a nutshell.
