Tweets for week ending 2009-02-09

  • I’m slightly embarrassed that the UK grinds to a halt with a bit of snow. #
  • It’s snowing! http://is.gd/i4Ag #
  • I’m thinking I should get out there with my camera, but worry I’ll just end up getting questioned by the police again. #
  • My TV has died. Blessing or curse? #
  • No buses. No taxis. So I’m about to start a 1.5 mile walk to the Town Hall. “I’m going out now, I may be some time.” #
  • Amazed at what it’s like out there. Hardly any traffic, pubs closing at 9.30 just a handful of people on the streets. It’s eerie.. #
  • A rare blog post promotion: A little (self) praise for our response to the snow http://is.gd/idI8 #
  • Much as I like @stephenfry this is going a bit far – a #frylift hashtag?! Who are the other people in there, I want to follow them instead. #
  • I’m making a bad habit of Tweeting blog posts, but would appreciate comments on the future of Wandsworth crime mapping… http://is.gd/imHq #
  • Phew haven’t stopped today. And a full council meeting tonight, but I won’t be boring anyone with Tweets on that! #
  • Ego-RT @wandbc: Bin those scam emails and letters: The council is supporting a campaign to expose and combat some http://tinyurl.com/ashxve #
  • At a full council meeting where I’m pretty sure standing orders forbid me Tweeting. I MUST RESIST. #
  • Would-be cllrs tip: if you’re responding to a debate with five speakers, don’t drink lots of water before you go into the Council Chamber. #
  • Right, council meeting finished, slightly bizarre moment with Labour trying to congratulate Martin Linton for opposing the 3rd runway! #
  • Cold, wet and dismal out. The snow induced happiness seems to have disappeared and London is back to normal. #
  • If any cllrs find their way here from the firstonline article http://bit.ly/3Dz15a can I suggest you follow @CllrTweeps? #
  • Just been to a fascinating day on digital engagement and communities organized by @simongrace. Thanks and congratulations are in order. #
  • I’m not ashamed to admit I get a palpable sense of disappointment when I discover new followers are spam. But I do enjoy blocking them! #
  • Reading the #questiontime stream is really appealing to the Liberty supporting part of me. Not something I would have said a few years ago! #
  • It’s great that LMAO is a trending topic for no particular reason other than lots of people are laughing at lots of different things. #
  • Chairing the Employment and Skills Partnership ths morning, though some of our targets set pre-recession are looking a bit unrealistic now! #
  • Massive ego- RT: [SIF] Twitter best practice from Wandsworth Borough Council http://tinyurl.com/balzxo (via @twofootedtackle) in reply to twofootedtackle #
  • Ego of the last tweet aside, if anyone does have any Wandsworth problems or issues feel free to @, DM or email me, & I’ll try to help. #
  • Feeling guilty for my bout of egotism earlier. Sorry everyone, I will try and avoid subjecting you to it again. #
  • Shouldn’t be so bearish about the economy. The Employmt & Skills Partnership was very productive, there are reasons to be +ve in Wandsworth. #
  • I’m not retweeting @ingridk’s blog post because I’m going cold turkey on ego-tweets. #
  • Does anyone know of a fairly easy to set-up web-directory? doesn’t need to be too flash, just to work as a web front-end for a few weeks. #
  • Bad news for Balhamites. M&S have confirmed they are closing their Simply Food. http://is.gd/iEfA #
  • If any councillors happen across my Twitter after reading the LGA first feature, why not follow @CllrTweeps and visit http://cllrtweeps.com? #
  • At my cllr surgery. No attendees so far. Feel free to come along to Battersea library, no appointment needed! #
  • Still no attendees. These surgeries average 0.5 people a week, I’m beginning to think this is the week the 0.5 is rounded down. #
  • Pleased to read in the log that 2 weeks ago someone came to say they had no issues but asked the duty cllr to pass on their regards to me! #
  • My shift is over, no attendees. I’m not sure surgeries are the best way to offer access nowadays, but at least the library is warm & toasty! #
  • Just a gentle push for any councillors passing through here after reading LG first – please follow @CllrTweeps & visit http://cllrtweeps.com #
  • Time for the rugby now… but today, no Tweet is complete without pushing @CllrTweeps and http://cllrtweeps.com #
  • England winning the in rugby, now Grimsby in the lead against Exeter. The weekend is getting better. #
  • Exeter have equalised. How dare they? #
  • Indeed, though obviously I can’t speak for Dafydd (though he’d been speaking to Tweetminster about it!) #
  • Total Wipeout starts a night of naff TV, pizza & moderate alcohol consumption. There can only be one phrase to describe my life: Rock & Roll #
  • The definition of annoyance: seeing there’s a ‘QI XL’ just in time to catch the closing credits. Consoling myself with Transformers on Sky. #
  • Anyone watching ITV2? This has to be a classic movie scene. #
