I don’t know why I ever agree to go anywhere near Doug Burns – he usually manages to persuade me into doing things I don’t want to. This time (at a meeting of the London Oracle Beer group) he’s persuaded me that I really should join twitter. So I have (jloracle) – and found that I was being followed by four people before I even created an account, and was advised that I’d really, really, like to follow:
- Jack Rivera
- Justin Bieber
- Jennifer Lopez
- Katy Perry
- Gwen Shapira
I had no idea who Jack Rivera might be, though I did recognise the next three names from those annoying ads that seem to appear on all sorts of news feeds. The one that baffled me was Gwen Shapira – by what mechanism did twitter manage to connect my name/tag/email address with someone relevant ?
Anyway, thanks, Doug – now I have to start thinking of something intelligent, perceptive or witty in 140 characters or less.
(I just got the Jennifer Lopez link – JLOracle = J-Lo !)
