Character Of The Day: @keithwildman
“I was sceptical about Twitter. I’d relented to Facebook some years ago. Thought it was bobbins. Deleted my account. Goodbye social networking.
Then along came Twitter. ‘Why would I want anything to do with that?’ I thought. Reading about what people are having for tea? Why would I care? I forget why I signed up to it now but over the last 18 months or so, it’s replaced both Google and the internet as my first port of call looking for news and advice. Be it football, revolutions in the Middle East or whether the M62’s blocked today.
I’ve come to realise, it’s more like an open message board. For the whole world. Throw something out there and you might get an answer. You might learn something or you might be able to help someone else. You might even end up having your photograph taken and it being displayed in some gallery somewhere. Who knows?
And by the way, I’m having fishcakes for tea tonight.”
