Tweets for week ending 2009-05-18

  • I’ve barely been on Twitter recently. Struggling to thinking of anything at all constructive to add to the stream, maybe I should just go… #
  • If my job involved finding ways of procrastinating today would be the most productive day ever. 14:45 & only just turning to Twitter. #
  • Does anyone really care that I’m going to a meeting at the Town Hall tonight? Or that, on balance, I think I’d rather be in the pub? #
  • I tried to resist. Really, I did. But it was too much. For anyone who cares, my thoughts on expenses & Dave Nellist. http://is.gd/zag2 #
  • I sometimes feel I should say something profound on Twitter. Eric Cantona wouldn’t have that problem, if only his name hadn’t been squatted. #
  • Council officers have recommended that the Clapham Junction planning application be rejected. #
  • Am I the only one who doesn’t think the removal of one-sided conversations is an enhancement? #
  • Why is everyone suddenly subscribing to me in FriendFeed? I thought FriendFeed was seen as, well, not that good. #
  • Twitter was once like a good restaurant where you’d hear a snippet of conversation & just have to find out more. Please Twitter, #fixreplies #
  • So Twitter have decided they will brainstorm how to #fixreplies http://bit.ly/7vhZG Can’t they just undo the previous change? #
  • Full council meeting tonight, which I don’t Tweet http://bit.ly/ee66 not that I’ve been a high volume Twitterer lately. #
  • Yey: someone’s commented on the 1 video I have on YouTube. Boo: it was to accuse me of being on ‘just like an MP…on the take & the fiddle’ #
  • Does anyone know what “Shipment held at warehouse. Follow up actions underway” actually means on a TNT tracking page? #
  • Off my one of my regular meetings with the borough commander. #
  • But just as I’m stepping out the door TNT deliver the parcel that’s meant to be delayed at their warehouse. Blessed be the delivery man. #
  • Oh God nooooo. Migration assistant is estimating 19 hours until I can play with my new toy! #
  • Am I the only one who finds tweets about how the other sides expenses claims are worse just a little tiresome? #
  • Just thought, with the expenses, have MPs passed bankers in the hated jobs league table? #
  • Forgive the tedious stream of consciousness but I’m temporarily computerless. The iPhone and Tweetie are my saviours. #
  • How do you manage this? Don’t nominations create bureaucracy-paranoia in everyone? http://tiny.cc/4THqN (via @No2VotingFraud) #
  • So, that’s it. #
  • For this #followfriday I’m suggesting you give @CabbiesCapital a try. Not least because I find his trip details strangely fascinating. #
  • So why would people (I’m assuming it’s more than one) come to my eponymous blog and then do a search for ‘James Cousins’? #
  • A@Timforchange I don’t get why anyone would type my name anywhere on my blog! Can’t deny I’m flattered though, people want more of me! #
  • A @ThePickards I think it is a lovely name. Never really bothered looking at my stats before: there are some strange searches. in reply to ThePickards #
  • A @cabbiescapital That gives them a rarity value. But I really like them, perhaps it’s the intersections of various lives. in reply to cabbiescapital #
  • It’s Friday afternoon and I’m not being productive. Anyone care to help? How can I constructively Twitter away the next few hours? #
  • A @RossIGrant I have done them, very successfully, in the past, but a Fri pm is not a good time – you often can’t do anything until Mon am. in reply to RossIGrant #
  • A @Iheke Do you seriously think a terrorist would be deterred by a random search? I think they’d just be better at hiding their intent. in reply to Iheke #
  • A @Iheke I can’t believe you said that, you think it’s right the police have the power to stop and search without any reasonable suspicion?! in reply to Iheke #
  • A @Iheke Of course its not, the lack of charges or convictions is totally measurable. in reply to Iheke #
  • A @Iheke No, I’m pointing out that not getting a single conviction as a result of s44 shows it isn’t working just eroding civil liberties. in reply to Iheke #
  • A @Iheke I can see the (weak) other side of the argument but someone motivated to terrorism would not be put off by random searches. in reply to Iheke #
  • A @Iheke False analogy. You must admit the idea a suicide bomber would be deterred by a search is nonsense. Remember 7/7 and 21/7/05? in reply to Iheke #
  • Hardly ever use Twitter at the weekend. And hard to tell now if anyone else does, or you’re just all talking to each other. #fixreplies #
  • Struggling for Twitter inspiration today. Twinspiration? I might have to resort to watching #eurovision just to join in. #
  • Wow, @masks4swineflu is following me. Thank God someone is out there, capitalising on the swine flu FUD. Feel a block coming. #
  • #Eurovision + Wogan = Vaguely entertaining. Eurovision + Norton = televisual turd. #
  • Massively busy day, including a large amount at a couple of IDAHO events. Have I missed anything exciting on Twitter? #
