Tweets for week ending 2009-06-01

  • Poke around with Twitter and there’s always something not working. Part of its charm and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s not deliberate. #
  • Thanks for the follow, @apolicyfordave, but simple research would have shown I’m not really your target market. #
  • I seem to have contracted baby-flu from my son. I understand it is milder than man-flu, but worse than swine flu. #
  • Twetiquette question. Is it bad form to have two personal Twitter accounts? #
  • Surprised @Tweetie didn’t tie up with @12seconds, @Posterous or even @twitvid for their video Tweeting. #
  • Really looking forward to seeing if the BNP’s social media monitoring is as good as they claim & produce lots of hate-filled blog comments. #
  • Today’s Election Communication brings a message from Bob Crow – he wants to be an MEP, while not being an MEP, as well as stopping the Tube. #
  • I’ve seen plenty about Tweetie’s video tweeting, but has anyone seen any video tweets yet? #
  • So, apparently there’s some football match on tonight, great, I’m off out canvassing… there ought to be a law against it, you know. #
  • Bath time (for the boy, not me) and then annoying football fans time (that’ll be me. Canvassing. Sorry, really sorry). #
  • Not interested in the footie…the Duke Quiz starts @ 8 & you can win £50 tab. (via @dukebattersea) Or you can stay in & hope I canvass you! #
  • Aaand the first door is one of the good guys (obviously my definition of good may differ from yours). #
  • Wow, this road is MUCH better than it should be. Sign of a swing? Or people lying to get rid of us before the footy? #
  • Little secret, quit canvassing for the football. Unpatriotic secret, was rooting for Barça. Terrible secret, they totally deserved it. #
  • Because of @appleblossombea I’m trying to be more active on Twitter. If I start doing “I’m sitting on a chair” Tweets tell me. Or shoot me. #
  • .@GrantBlowers So far, not a peep from the BNP – they either aren’t monitoring social media or are being picky about where they respond. #
  • Pondering a post entitled ‘Confessions of a Conservative canvasser’ – probably not enough farce though. We did all that in the run-up to 97. #
  • BNP candidate withdraws, had confused BNP with non-racist, tolerant, party. http://bit.ly/pRxLT (via @No2VotingFraud) #
  • Playing around doing some page layout. I really enjoy design and curse the fact I’m so atrociously bad at it. #
  • Heading to a CompeteFor event to encourage local businesses to bid for Olympic contracts. #
  • My local bus stop is right outside the Labour offices: just seen a very subdued (and small) team head out for their evening of campaigning. #
  • If you like football, or even American soccer, you should #followfriday @twofootedtackle – could only be improved with more GTFC news. #
  • I’m doubly ashamed today 1. This Morning is on in the background. 2. Programmes like this exist, who cares about Susan Boyle’s PR breakdown? #
  • Words cannot express how sad I am that the Mariners following me now are the Seattle Mariners – not the real Mariners. #
  • Just got a Lab leaflet asking me to vote Labour in the euros… but only telling me about my 163 majority Labour MP! #
  • Taking photos of public buildings while trying to avoid police attention and the hassle of a section 44. Probably makes me a terrorist. #
  • Scarily just realised I have started seeing s44 as more a tiresome hassle than an affront to civil liberties. Have reversed that attitude. #
  • Does anyone know what the 50s ‘typing music’ you always see accompanying stock footage of typing pools is called? #
  • Beautiful weekend & bleak polls for Labour. That’s how it is on the #labourdoorstep: people want to give them a kicking. #
  • Is it really *the* @DavidVanDay on Twitter? #
  • If it weren’t for Grimsby Town I’d h e to be a Chelsea fan! Good result. #
  • For a week now I’ve really fancied a pint of shandy. I’m not sure whether that says something about the weather or something about me. #
  • Just wow: RT @krishgm: So far Labour will offer nobody at cabinet rank for interview – days before the election. (via @mattwardman) #
  • Weather forecast for Thursday looks good for campaigning. Bit cooler, no rain. Couldn’t be better for those of us running around all day. #
  • Hold it. Are we saying the mediocre singer and conventionally unattractive didn’t win? I missed it trying to work out Ant or Dec’s hair. #
  • I’m thinking that anyone watching FIVEUSA right now is watching a film they’ll never forget, even if they bleach their eyeballs. #
  • Has anyone seen a hashtag for the euro elections? I’d have thought #euro09 but hardly anyone uses it – not that I can find anything else. #
