Tweets for week ending 2009-06-28

  • Farewell, @localguardian, I will miss your Twitterfeed of news & spam but I'm going to give my heart to @Wandsworth_news instead. #
  • Ordnance Survey's choice for Michael Martin replacement? http://is.gd/194AZ A thoughtful looking Electoral Commission Chief Exec. #
  • I don't suppose anyone cares, but today I'm a martyr to my back. #
  • I feel I should make more effort with facebook. Will this do as a status update? #fb #
  • Brown didn't call after everyone resigned. No-one has tipped me for Speaker. Maybe, just maybe, I was being saved for deputy mayor. #
  • I wish @jesscousins would stop spreading scandalous lies about me. I'm absolutely fine. Nothing wrong with me. Might go weightlifting later. in reply to jesscousins #
  • Even more spam from @TotalPolitics, clearly their unsubscribe is actually a link to a 'yes, I'd love to waste time on surveys' database. #
  • Well, I suppose this means John Bercow won't be defecting to Labour after all. #
  • My rule, would I say this out loud right now?: @vikkichowney rule of thumb: "can my Mum read this?" #hpt09? (via @deejackson) #
  • Do any of these Plymouth Twitter ban stories have quotes from ordinary residents rather than the Labour press release? #
  • My Twitter scepticism has attracted the attention of all sorts of SEO experts. Greetings new followers, hope you'll be unfollowing soon. #
  • Damn right: "If you live in SW11 you live in Battersea, not Clapham!" http://lovebattersea.googlepages.com/ (via @robertbrook) #
  • Wandsworth… comes top… of the resident satisfaction tables in the Place Survey. (via @DanDrillsma) #
  • I'm sorry, but why is everyone getting excited about Plymouth having the same Internet access policy as almost every other council? #
  • FREE wine tasting at The Lavender tomorrow from 6pm-all welcome (via @TheWineBox) #
  • Nostalgic chat with @IdleSi made me look up my 1st web-enabled phone: a Nokia 7110 with Matrix slider. http://yfrog.com/123eaj #
  • Battersea riverside open air opera, free tomorrow evening: http://tinyurl.com/nkwkdq (via @wandbc) #
  • Meetings. Meetings. Meetings. Perhaps we should take democracy out, to a park, or a bar with a nice outdoor seating area. #
  • If an argument was needed for #fixreplies, this is it: http://twitpic.com/89yhr Open transparent inspirational leadership (via @bureauista) #
  • How many #fix hashtags are needed today? #fixblock #fixfollow #fixunfollow. Can't not chuck in #fixreplies. Any others? #
  • Three meetings back to back tonight. Heading towards them I see most sane people are already in the pub. #
  • Going to be scrutinised for the first time this municipal year. Have a feeling it's going to be a fun one! #
  • Just finished a lengthy scrutiny. Some high quality discussion. #
  • There's all sorts wrong with this. Is the abbatoir correctly licensed for a start: Pub in Tooting http://tinyurl.com/mtammt (via @ingridk) #
  • Oh God. At the end of the day the mirror shows my hair has gone Tory boy. The marketing text from my hairdresser was right – I must go back. #
  • Reminded by @russelltanner's 1st blog of a colleague who is soon to blog & was born with a surname for blogging, but no, mustn't spoil it… #
  • Now have a sleeping baby on my lap. Can't imagine how life can get any better. #
  • I've realised that I rarely follow new people since Twitter changed their reply settings, so am trying to be a bit more 'promiscuous'. #
  • Can anyone help me solve this equation: MassiveInbox + LotsOfEmail + OutstandingTasks – AnyTime = ? #
  • Email inbox now cleared (apart from the pesky email that just arrived) now just a 6" pile in the physical inbox. Thanks for the tips! #
  • I know everyone complains about how hot the Tube gets, but they should try this bus (admittedly, it is basically a green house on wheels) #
  • Using council computers to check into Twitter. It's not blocked here, but I'm forced to use IE6, which I think is much much worse. #
  • Much as I think such stats are meaningless I'm only 4 followers off 500… I wonder which spammer will be 500. #
  • Late notice, but if you are in SW11 and fancy some riverside open air opera then you should head down to Battersea Reach from 7.30pm #
  • Anyone else having problems blocking? Just tried to get rid of some spammers but seems iffy, good old, totally unreliable Twitter. #
  • AudioBoo: A windy OpenAirOperaBoo from Battersea Reach http://boo.fm/b33370 #
  • Please, everyone, take a moment and spare a thought for Macaulay Culkin. #
  • Is this good or bad for Britain's Got Talent dance acts? #MichaelJackson #
  • I worry that Twitter has made me think that people really do care about what I get up to during the week. #
  • Incidentally that last tweet was more rhetorical musing that fishing for sympathy. Which was lucky because I didn't get much. #
  • Little 'uns woken up… That's my spurt of work/Twittering brought to an end. Although I'm quite excited about watching In The Night Garden. #
  • Mini Me has decided he's hungry (he has just woken). Not manly to say, but I'm finding the sight of a baby feeding himself very cute. #
  • Noticed what looks like a #g2g Twitterfall in @sharonodea's yfrog pic… Wondering whether to spam it… Would that be bad? #
  • Derek Jacobi is the narrator of In The Night Garden. That just seems wrong. It would have been like asking John Gielgud to voice Penfold. #
  • Tired after a long week? Have a nice sit down and a cup of tea in a Habitat chair #g2g

    (More seriously, when are things kicking off?) #

  • Been very voyeuristic with #g2g, watching but not contributing. Have followed lots, so now I'm a stalker too. #
  • So disappointed Mardy Fish has been knocked out. Fellow northerners will know why… #
  • Has Milburn realised that there are better things to do with life than being an MP? Or is this part of the steady drip of anti-Brown moves? #
  • Seeing people Twitter about applying for conference passes makes me wonder: are there any Tweet-ups organised? #
  • Finally, after months of stagnation, my @cnps progresses to 23 #
  • Just got MiniMe to sleep (3 hours later than usual) in his own room for the 1st time. I'm putting odds he'll be in our bed by 3am. #fb #
  • 1999: Saturday = getting bladdered in the West End. 2009: Saturday = looking at self-catering in Cleethorpes. Rock and roll. #
  • I've gone an entire day without TV, but seeing Glastonbury Tweets makes me want to put it on. Do I use the midnight technicality? #
  • Just caught about five seconds of Big Brother while flicking through channels. I felt my IQ drop, I knew putting the TV on was a mistake. #
  • Wow, the commentary team at Glastonbury are really adding something aren't they? #
  • Oooo, just spotted a West Wing on More 4. Sadly turned out to be a Jamie Oliver ad when I switched to it. #
  • Holy Cow! Flight Control update available. Peer-to-peer multi-player. Must. Stop. Hyper-ventilating. #
  • So sorry to hear of the passing of Jo Norton from @WandsworthSP, my thoughts are with friends and family. in reply to WandsworthSP #
  • Got fed up of waiting for Apple to release the fixed @Tweetie for iPhone, so am experimenting. Any iPhone clients I just HAVE to try? #
  • Any other iPhone Twitter recommendations? Perhaps I should just buy them all and find out for myself. #
  • Not a seconds buyer's remorse with the new iPhone, but feel almost suicidal over ¬£1.19 on Tweetflip. #
  • I've eaten far too much cheese. It's time for bed. I'll tell you about the nightmares in the morning. #
