Do you twitter?

I've recently got into it and it's great fun. Halfway between blogging and Instant Messaging.

I've just found the public feed and it's fascinating to read.
http://twitter.com/public_timeline

Here are some of today's most intriguing tweets. Post any you find here.

Hey Sweetheart....Take care of the pig :-) xo

There's a van outside

I can row 5 km. Can you?

finally! white teeth are eating me! yay!

Off to work now. Oh flickety-flocking joy.

it was the middle of alaska

When is the funeral? And how do you know YOUR laptop is going toward the light?

Windows 7 Beta Available Today: For any Windows lover or enthusiast, which their might not be too many of left

I know it sounds small, but for a brand new and very first ever workshop, it was great

OTOH, Python has an else clause on loops. Perfect when falling through a for loop after not having found what you want and broken out of it.

it is a little screwed at the minute

Mad woman sitting next to me (not Harman) trying to strike up conversation by staring. I'm pretending to be engrossed in phone.

Meeting Syd today for lunch at Ferry Farm Elementary. She wants McDonald's, again. I don't like McDonald's, but it's about her not me.

I don't know why Chileans even have clocks or wear watches...seriously.

It's like that scene from The Shining, when Shelley Duvall has found out that all Jack Nicholson had been writing is "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".

Yeah, I use twitter loads. Only started up an account about a month ago, but now I love it. I tweet a lot, which probably isn't a good thing! But I've gotten lots of contacts through it - it's a good way to network, particularly if you're into web-based stuff or designing or developing. That, and it's something to do when you're bored :P.

I can't say I "celeb stalked" him, but Stephen Fry and I reciprocated each other's Twitter following.

That's exactly what it's like! That Tower Bridge is pretty hilarious in its own way; it could become compulsive viewing!

I joined Twitter and at first found it quite odd but now am strangely addicted to it. It's kind of like the Facebook status update option but none of my relatives "follow" me on Twitter so I can actually say how I feel rather than my usual PG responses.

I do worry about the fact I want to keep strangers updated as to my current status however, it is an easy way to get chatting to people.

With the growing number of celebs doing it I expect there will be a surge in numbers - Jonathan Ross appears to be outing all the fake celebs which saves everyone else a job, John Cleese and Stephen Fry are pretty funny and if you are a Heroes fan Brea Grant, Greg Grunberg and David H Lawrence are all on there.

Are Neil and Warren celebrities? Granted what they talk about is guaranteed to be more interesting, but...
