Tweets for week ending 2009-02-02

  • To my Wandsworth followers: Is there anything I (as a councillor) can do for you or help you with? You won’t be the first, so don’t be shy. #
  • I’m having one of those days when I’m just rattling through my to-do list – and it’s giving me a great feeling for the week ahead. #
  • Havin’ changed me olde facebooke language t’ pirate I’m rather enjoyin’ usin’ it again. Arrrr. #
  • At Town Hall. Something about its 30s grandeur charms just enough to compensate for the lack of modern amenities. http://twitpic.com/17iin #
  • Wow, this is my first Tweet of the day. Still quality over quantity… oh, now I’ve failed on that one as well. #
  • I’m so pleased with the response to my offer of help so a repeat: Anyone want any help with Wandsworth issues, feel free to @ or DM me. #
  • Thanks to @appleblossombea I think ‘democratic gigolo’ title has to go – any suggestions for alternatives? in reply to appleblossombea #
  • Quite a few places are tipping Paul Stephenson as the new Met Commissioner – an interesting appointment, if true. #
  • It was cold, wet and miserable for a run around Battersea Park this morning, but I counted at least 8 others as masochistic as me. #
  • They are tweeting live on This Morning. I can’t help but think that is a bad thing. Not as bad as a Daily Mail endorsement, but bad. #
  • Taking the little ‘un on his first trip into central London to meet his Mum’s work colleagues. #
  • Well, a couple of hours to myself in central London. What to do? #
  • Whenever I walk past packed meeting rooms I think: 1. That looks dull, glad I’m out here & 2. That might be interesting, wish I was in it. #
  • Cheers for suggestions. Amazingly I’ve found myself in the Apple Store – totally unexpected. #
  • I admire the guys with beat up Dells in the Apple Store theatre who are shamelessly there only for the free wifi to get onto Hotmail. #
  • Such is my hypochondria that I can’t even read about the cello scrotum story (http://bit.ly/13PBl) without a tiny bit of worry. #
  • I’m doing 200 words for ‘first’ on being a Twittering cllr. That’s about 8.6 tweets worth! How will I fill it? #
  • I’m getting quite excited about this Saturday, even though I don’t know what to expect and have no idea what additional insight I can bring. #
  • Going to my policy meeting with officers. I often wonder if Yes, Minister is a good comparison, but that wouldn’t paint me in a good light. #
  • Well, that wasn’t Yes Minister at all. Now for some real work and resisting playing with the new iPhoto. #
  • Tooting-ites might be interested in this facebook group http://bit.ly/tPfI – join in and let us know how we can make Tooting even better. #
  • I try to avoid Twittering blog posts, but couldn’t resist that one. The explanation on Martin Linton’s site is here http://bit.ly/2X6pIq #
  • Community Safety Strategy Group and council group tonight. But @gill_edwards has really set me thinking about social media love in Balham. #
  • Meetings over. Now for some serious face recognition with iPhoto. #
  • Doing my 200 words on Twitter. I can’t decide it It needs less than 140 characters or more than 200 words! #
  • 200 words later (well 212, actually) you can read my efforts on my blog http://is.gd/hO2m before they are mercilessly edited. #
  • So, now people are starting to think about #ukgc09 I’m beginning to wonder what I have to offer the day. #
  • I’m wondering if I’ve been a little dismissive of facebook. Does anyone know of any good examples of facebook as an engagement tool? #
  • What’s the betting on if (when?) #ukgc09 becomes a trending topic? #
  • On bus. Going to #ukgc09. Need coffee. #
  • Stood behind @ingridk at the #ukgc09 queue. Wondering if she’ll notice me or this tweet first. #
  • Wondering if I should pay attention to the current session, or just follow the live Twitter #ukcg09 #
  • Big thanks to all the #ukgc09 organisers. Probably the best ‘conference’ I’ve ever attended. #
  • To most this will be meaningless. But to those it isn’t: Daddy is in the chair. Repeat. Daddy is in the chair. #
  • My hopes for British victory in Eurovision ’09 are sunk. That song is, well, rubbish – can’t stop thinking of Geraldine McQueen. #
  • Hmmmm. I’m seeing why these weren’t the finalists. Apart from Lulu of course, she rocks. #eurovision #
  • #uksnow SW11 0/10 – and very very unhappy about it. I want snow. #
  • I’m just not getting any work done today, I think I should admit defeat. It’s Sunday, time to relax in my chair and veg infront of the TV. #
  • #uksnow SW11 3/10 in reply to paulhenderson #
  • I’m beginning to hate my modem, why must it fight everything I do online? It’s only a Wii, I’m not trying to look for UFOs at the Pentagon. #
  • Somehow it seems wrong that @stephenfry likes darts and watches ITV4. Mind you, he’s right, a better match for Taylor being out of form. #
