While at Tobys last week we somehow ended up talking about Twitter. They’d been using it for a while, and while my initial reaction to the concept was the same as Rich’s – “why?” – but they painted a different picture of using it to arrange things and generally feel more connected.

Inevitably, I joined and am trying it out. So far it’s been better than I imagined. Having a picture of what your friends are up to during the day can be quite useful, though whether it’s useful when you’re not in their neighbourhood is still open to debate. Only time will tell.
