  • Blogged: Tweets for week ending 2009-11-01 http://bit.ly/1zL8l5 #
  • Blogged: Crime briefing, 22 – 29 October http://bit.ly/1mQ9d0 #
  • Blogged: Balham was there first http://bit.ly/3bblTx #
  • I'm seething at the huge injustice done to Balham today. Do you think we could get one of @mayoroflondon's famous apologies? #
  • Mail.app on my iPhone has gone mad. It's dinging more than @bongbot and refusing to stay open. #
  • Disagree with the article's conclusion, I'm likely to be switching RT @TotalApps: Orange Announce iPhone Plans: http://bit.ly/3hJJqZ #
  • RT @davorg: New writing: sw12: X Crossing:
    If all you had to go by was today's press coverage (which seems to.. http://bit.ly/2kZP48 #
  • I'm reminded by @BryonyEvens that there's also a diagonal crossing at the junction of Queenstown Road and Battersea Park Road. in reply to BryonyEvens #
  • I can sort of see why Halloween in the UK is being Americanised, but why the hell is it still trending on 2 Nov? #
  • I think @twittQ_uk keeps following & unfollowing me to get me to follow them. Should I A) ignore B) block or C) block and report as spam? #
  • I seem to be stuck in some sort of 'wheels on the bus' Groundhog Day. #
  • The Metro have picked up on the campaign to get Balham's X-crossing the recognition it deserves so keep an eye out for it. #
  • Just heard from a friend who was ejected from Clapham Junction station for selling poppies. South West Trains should be ashamed. #
  • No surprise for Wandsworth RT @FairtradeLondon: London Borough landmarks on pin badges for 2012 – as voted for by you: http://bit.ly/3PVJ3T #
  • That's my plans for tomorrow sorted. RT @Zerochamp: RT @PWNews: Marmite pop up shop on Regent Street tomorrow http://bit.ly/7MbxW #
  • At the Town Hall for the Regeneration and Community Safety committee #
  • Time for a hair cut. #
  • Congrats to the Local Government Chronicle for getting it right on Oxford Circus and Balham http://tr.im/E0Rn #
  • CORRECTION: Congrats to the Municipal Journal for getting it right on Oxford Circus and Balham http://tr.im/E0Rn #
  • Blogged: Regeneration and Community Safety Committee http://bit.ly/Wp4fu #
  • Aggressive looking ticket inspectors have boarded the bus. They mean business (and a further delay). #
  • Been to Apple Store. Didn't bother checking out X-crossing at Oxford Circus. Already seen one at Balham. #
  • Outside the splendid 55, Broadway. My unhappy workplace for a number of (pre-BoJo) years. #
  • I've got a meeting at the Metropolitan Police Authority before I experience the joy of the Magic Mouse. #
  • Oh dear. I seem to have annoyed Westminster with my comments about Oxford Circus. #
  • Getting excited about my new Magic Mouse. Whatever you think of Apple you cannot deny they design beautiful products. #
  • I seem to have created a new word via a typo, but I'm sticking with it, the Magic Mouse is superby. #
  • Whoa, loads of new followers I've not had emails about. Time for some spam reporting, me thinks. #
  • But first, hello to @AlanFosterHair Wandsworth business who knows he's in Battersea! (and sorry I didn't come to you for my haircut today) #
  • Safer Neighbourhood Team meeting now. Feel like I'm keeping the police off the streets. #
  • Loving scrolling through things with the Magic Mouse. #
  • £30 for the Wolfram Alpha app – wow. Almost tempted by their confidence it's worth that much. #
  • Feeling guilty I've not got anywhere organising a second Battertweet. How would people feel about a late November tweet-up? #
  • Damn you, FriendFeed, damn you. #fb #
  • Six spam emails featuring Esther Rantzen. Either spammers are desperate or her parliamentary campaign needs to improve its targeting. #
  • Preparing an apology for an offensive blog post I made. #
  • Apology done. I feel a lot better having got that off my mind. http://j.mp/6Ktuf #
  • Blogged: Oxford Circus: An apology http://bit.ly/qk3NZ #
  • Bread, cheese meet Breville. Breville, this is bread and cheese. I'm sure you'll get along. #
  • RT @oxcirccrossing: @jamescousins your apology is accepted. Very big of you. #
  • I'm being cultural tonight & listening to really old music. Any suggestions on what MiniMe and I can listen to this afternoon to prepare? #
  • My favouritepart of the MiniMe day: naptime. Now, work or join him? Since he's fallen asleep on me I feel it's going to be the latter. #
  • Could you even vote then? RT @HouseofTwits: RT @Emma_Hoddinott NEVER AGAIN. Exactly how we feel about the Conservatives after Thatcher. #
  • 19 years after Thatcher, 12 years of Labour and still they raise her. How about thinking about the future, Labour #
  • Enjoying a bit of 80s scent nostalgia. Anyone remember Insignia, Tweed or Charlie? #
  • Dashing to the South Bank. Must resist picking a fight with the London Eye by suggesting the Festival of Britain had a riverside wheel first #
  • It's great watching my data connection diminish as I head into London, 3G, EDGE, GPRS then patches of nothing. #
  • I seem to have survived, and even enjoyed, my first exposure to a classical concert. Do I now have to renounce my Philistinism? #
  • Very frustrated that Tweetie for Mac doesn't have momentum scroll with the Magic Mouse. #
  • This is the most distressing image spam I have ever received. http://twitpic.com/ob0gs #
  • I'm not sure if I've mentioned this, but the Magic Mouse is superb. You need one. #
  • Looking forward to #smc09 later where, according to tagal.us, "smartmarriages.com gathers top relationship experts at yearly conference"! #
  • Can anyone explain where this March elections rumours originate? #
  • Blogged: Now 99% opinion free http://bit.ly/44S4f #
  • Heading to #smc09 to do the day's last session; the one where people start clock watching & wishing the guy from Wandsworth would shut up. #
  • Just discovered (the wrong way) that Wandsworth's email filters will block the word 'turd'. #
  • Getting ready to be the hate figure at #smc09 for my social media sceptic ways. http://twitpic.com/oczjl #
  • Superbly put RT @totalplace Pull of enthusiasm more effective than push of obligation for encouraging cllrs to get involved in socmed #smc09 #
  • The tweeting died down in that session: something one of us said? #smc09 #
  • Who is @totalplace? Are they in the pub? #
  • RT @wandbc: Remembrance Sunday services: Men and women who have given their lives in the service of their country will http://bit.ly/4jSP93 #
  • Now following @jonball, fellow #smc09 panellist who (even though he's a Lib Dem!) made some excellent points. #
  • Just waded in to help a security guard deal with a very aggressive guy. Now my middle class guilt sets in, was I on the right side? #
  • Current #earworm: Odyssey, 'Native New Yorker'. #
  • Really enjoyed #smc09, sorry I couldn't make the whole day. If what I missed was as good as what I saw it was my loss. #
  • Clearly all the crowds blocking the streets are online, meaning I'm relegated to @O2's GPRS. #
  • And @siwhitehouse is another interesting and intelligent tweeter I'm following as a result of #smc09 (& no, I don't pay for tweet-ups!) in reply to siwhitehouse #
  • One of the local twitterati will be turning on the Christmas lights at Clapham Junction on 18 Nov. Anyone fancy an impromptu #Battertweet? #
  • Not their belief there were abuses, their *knowedge* there were abuses #bbcqt #
  • So none of Blair's American friends mentioned a politicised police force with excessive power? #bbcqt #
  • Anyone else switched off while Kilroy-Silk talks? #bbcqt #
  • In defence of Kilroy-Silk, he's not Jeremy Kyle #bbcqt #
  • The Eden Project don't seem to have any Christmas events planned, but they will be celebrating 'A Time of Gifts'. #
  • Another fantastic Wandsworth business: @BellevueTeaLady, who can help with anything cuppa related. #
  • Oxford Circus and Balham have made Dave Hill's Guardian column http://j.mp/1m2PVD #
  • On Northcote Road launching alert box. #
  • So, who would be up for a #Battertweet on 18 November? #
  • Perhaps I should explain, Battersea + tweet-up = #Battertweet… So anyone near SW11 up for a tweet-up on 18 November near Clapham Junction? #
  • Been reminded of my 'engagement anniversary'. Now, am I being insensitive, or are dates like that too much for a man to remember? #
  • Blogged: Weekly wrap-up, 6 November http://bit.ly/4scYWG #
  • Anyone from SW11 (or near) around? Fancy a tweet-up on 18 November near Clapham Junction? #Battertweet #
  • Having a rare night out tonight, the weather isn't going to do our Friday might finery any good. #
  • But at least you're going to the ball! RT @jesscousins: Cinderella didn't go to the ball by train #
  • I've realised that one of the reasons I really hate @O2 is because they make me moan so much (he says in a momentary patch of GPRS coverage) #
  • The band are playing 'The Quo' and there's only one generation on the dancefloor. The night has peaked. #
  • Brutal honesty for Twitter: @jesscousins thinks I'm staying up to drink. It's actually because the babysitter left LOTS of chocolate. #
  • Leaving me with babysitter's chocolate! RT @jesscousins: Impressed with Addison Lee. Requested car 1:36 Arrived 1:39! Babysitter on way home #
  • I'm the first in my twitterstream to tweet for half-an-hour. #
  • Don't suppose there's a hashtag for the London Councils' summit. Anyone? #
  • A resounding silence to my London Councils summit hashtag enquiry. It seems there's a grand total of one other person tweeting from it. #
  • Just walked past a couple eating a bag of chips. God they smelled good. #
  • Doing my social media spiel at London Councils later. If only these things were paid (or paid up, Standards Board I'm looking at you). #
  • Not seen 3G at all along Lavender Hill and Wandsworth Road, dropped onto GPRS near to Vauxhall. #o2fail #
  • Took a moment for reflection at Westminster Abbey. http://twitpic.com/olxoz #
  • Quite a few Twitterers in the audience, but not seeing many tweets. #
  • Interesting session at London Councils, Mary Reid on blogging and now Lambeth's @cllrstevereed on his take. #
  • Good point made by @ingridk – social media may not have affect Obama's election, but did help him win the nomination. #
  • I hate myself for this, but think I want to watch #xfactor to see Jedward do Ghostbusters. #
  • On GPRS again. Come on @O2, this is a world city. #o2fail #
  • Town losing again, I see. Is @MightyMariner warming up yet? #
  • Marmite and honey turns out to be another winning combination. #
  • Leaving @jesscousins to watch 8 hours of Strictly while I watch things go bang. #
  • Hmmm. Fox and Hounds flogging "Hot roast pork firework sandwiches" for a fiver. Am I getting old or stingy or is that just a rip-off? #
  • Getting a golf buggy from the gate to the fireworks. Wow! #
  • 12seconds – Another fantastic firework display from Wandsworth http://tiny12.tv/4A56U #
  • So. Did Jedward win tonight? #
  • Not a great twitpic, but thought I'd share the one photo I took of the fireworks today. http://twitpic.com/oon2m #
  • Hanging out on the ukwhitegoods.co.uk forum. Rock and roll. #
  • I've finally sorted out the #Battertweet twtvite. Please RSVP at http://twtvite.com/dtvaoq #
  • Yey. Some people have added themselves to the RSVP. Good to see you @simonperryman and also someone called @jesscousins #
  • MiniMe's new car-seat has an in-built snack tray & beverage holder, so salty bites & sugary liquid joy are within arm's reach on every trip. #
  • So did Jedward win? #
  • Any news on when Jedward's album is being released? Is it available as an iTunes pre-order yet? #
  • Just added @cllrpaulankers (LD) from @ManCityCouncil. http://tr.im/EyvF #
  • Curse multiple accounts. #
  • Live near Clapham Junction? Free on 18 November? Why not come along to #Battertweet? http://twtvite.com/dtvaoq #
