Tweets for week ending 2009-06-08

  • Guess the election maps website http://is.gd/LpOp needs someone new for the intro, perhaps someone known for helping the democratic process. #
  • Just putting together my crime mapping. Came across great crime – guy trying to burgle house, caught by occupier, who then mugs burgler! #
  • Really pleased that, despite everything, Susan Boyle has taken the time to check with Cowell & Morgan that Gordon Brown is OK. #
  • Trying to interest @johnhallmark in Twitter. #
  • 3 days and on the stump again. Anyone planning on using Twitter for knocking-up? #
  • Ever wanted to see a timelapse video of some camembert? You have? Well today’s your lucky day then… http://is.gd/LMvS #
  • I’ve long been wondering when this would happen: Twitter used to inform burglars? – http://bit.ly/Ej87m (via @mashable) #
  • I’m trying to persuade @johnhallmark that Twitter is worth trying, anyone care to send him a message telling him why? #
  • Just been for a run… It’s damn hot out there already, looks like being a scorcher of a day. #
  • Have you ever wanted to see a timelapse movie of some cheese warming to room temperature? Then today’s your lucky day: http://is.gd/Mj0l #
  • I actually feel a bit guilty that some of you have watched the cheese video now – I know you’ll never get that time back. I’m sorry. #
  • It seems like the government is imploding while Brown perfects the bunker mentality. #
  • So the Guardian is urging the Cabinet to ditch Brown, I’d hate to be assistant bringing that particular media summary to our Beloved Leader. #
  • What I never understood about Hazel Blears was how she got into Cabinet in the first place. I reckon she did a Hollie Steel. #
  • Anyone else having problems with Twitterfall? #
  • Having coffee with @johnhallmark, he’s given up on conversation generally, not just Twitter, he’s reading the Daily Mail instead #banaltweet #
  • Cabinet resignations? Pah. Today I’ve been discussing social media http://is.gd/NfiH cheese http://is.gd/NfiG & canvassing http://is.gd/NfiI #
  • Email is so last year with its Viagra-obsessed spam, no variety. Twitter gives users spam diversity, like @ComfyEarPlugs my latest follower. #
  • This is a bizarre question, but does anyone else with O2 home broadband have any trouble accessing Twitterfall? #
  • All in a good cause, but not enjoying being up at this time with such a long day still ahead of me. #
  • See those barely visible dots? Hot air balloons. Over Central London. http://yfrog.com/79qzqj #
  • Oh dear, you’d think they’d make the effort to open today, wouldn’t you? http://yfrog.com/6ui5oj #
  • Where politics meets Doctor Who: “Labour’s cybermen prepare to delete PM” – The Sun, eh? http://bit.ly/JjoM8 (via @craigelder) #
  • It’s election day & polls are open, why not vote on your way to work; in Wandsworth you can find your polling station at http://tr.im/wwvote #
  • My station in the campaign for the next couple of hours. If you’re voting at BAC say hi. http://yfrog.com/0dkzmaj #
  • Well, people being very friendly today, still wish there was a Labour teller to chat with though! #
  • Just had first refusal of the day. He went off looking very pleased with himself – feels like I’ve made his day! #
  • Surprising how many people are turning up with passports and other ID when we have an electoral process largely based on trust. #
  • Finally seeing some opposition activity: Labour are delivering their, um, eve of poll leaflets. Better late than never! #
  • Just spotted the Jury Team bus. Not quick enough for a photo though. #
  • Have you voted yet? It only takes a few mins, you can pop in on your way – find your Wandsworth polling station at http://tr.im/wwvote #
  • Look closely & you’ll see Labour are already throwing out their ‘vote today’ leaflets. Giving up already? http://yfrog.com/5hc0tj #
  • Just picked up two postal votes from people who’d forgotten to post them! You can drop them off at any polling station http://tr.im/wwvote #
  • Just an hour left to send your message to Brown. To find your Wandsworth polling station go to http://tr.im/wwvote #
  • Purnell goes and still three days until the count of Labour’s electoral disaster. This isn’t Brown’s ’97. It’s much much worse. #
  • I’ve really enjoyed my election day, in real life and Twitter – so whether you’ve Tweeted back or not, share my views or not, thanks. #
  • Hearing some of the turnouts from the polling stations here. Turnout seems lower in Labour areas. Any ideas why that might be? #
  • There can only be one #followfriday today – #reshuffle #
  • And you should also follow #mficabinet (via @ThePickards) #
  • Following @HouseOfTwits is great, you get gems like: Generally good results this morning for Labour : – ) xxx (via @JayneInnes) #
  • I see @DowningStreet is doing #followfriday. What to you reckon to the chances of Gordon Brown following Smith, Blears, Burnham and Hoon? #
  • Gordon, I already know the title I want so it’d be really easy to make me a lord and give me a job. #
  • Anyone notice Brown going back in time with the reshuffle? Mandelson, then a Kinnock, expect a séance with Wilson & Attle next. #
  • Twelve hours away from a twenty minute presentation. Knackered from the euro elections. Staring at a blank Keynote. I should be panicking! #
  • I wonder how well Gordon Brown is sleeping tonight. #
  • Full day today. Neighbourhood Watch conference this morning followed by feeble attempt to catch up after last week. But why the bad weather? #
  • Getting worried that I’m developing an App Store obsession – can’t stop looking at new Apps to buy. #
  • Interesting that @SadiqKhan announced his promotion on Twitter. Really looking forward to him announcing his resignation tomorrow. #
  • Struggling to get excited about euro results. There’s something wrong about not counting straight after close of polls. #
  • Was explaining the d’Hondt system to @jesscousins – for some reason she seemed really pleased when the baby woke and started crying. #
  • Good to see that Jeremy Vine has got some CGI that’s flashy, but not really that good at illustrating the figures #eu09 #
  • Disappointed my ‘home’ EU constituency has elected a BNP MEP. A failure of the mainstream political parties to engage those voters. #
  • Cracking line “Tonight’s a great night for Michael Foot. He’s no longer Labour’s biggest loser.” #
