Tweet Delete

Deleted my Twitter account yesterday – it seems to be turning into a system for advertising porn sites.


  1. I have not deleted mine but I am pleased to say that I have forgotten my log-on details. I could never quite get the point of it. Who on earth could be interested in the boring minutiae of our daily lives?
    Going to wash my face now and have a shave.

  2. I started one ages ago. Never used it.

  3. I created a Twitter account so that I could follow others (without any intention to tweet). Before I knew it, I had 5 followers.
    Needless to say, I have logged in about 5 times to read the tweets, all of which have been pretty banal... Much as I love Stephen Fry, keeping up with his hourly activities is low on my priority list. Haven't come across the porn thing though... yet.

  4. Alan: Well today I.... no, I won't bother you with the minutiae.

    Lee: Which begs the question of why you started one in the first place. A solution waiting for a problem?

    Kabbalah: You will.

  5. I'm scared of Twitter. Millions of people recording every move they make, every thought that strikes them. TALK TO SOMEONE, PEOPLE!

  6. I did find it a relatively pointless exercise, where you obsess about keeping your blog words down to the manageable number (always difficult for me, and I'd guess you, Sir!).

    I liked being able to speak to bloggy pals, however, it seemed to be full of wannabees just wanting to touch the coat-tails of Jonathan Ross, Stephen Fry, Ashton Kutcher, et al...

    Didn't see the porn bits tho' - Must check that you, thanks for the tip! x
