“Take to twitter” …

Jul 21, 2014

is hardly as rousing a call to arms as “man the barricades”.

Yes, of course , the whole edifice of Twitter is to deliver the incoherent, incontinent ramblings of the self-obsessed to a media-starved world, pining for the incisive contributions of Barry from Bridgend or Nora from Nuneaton. Or is that #Barrybonehead-wassup ?

BBC iplayer was unavailable over the past weekend. Irritating? yes. Life-threatening? Well, I’ll leave you to work that one out.

World-wide news reports stated “people took to twitter to complain”. I’m sure “they” are quaking in their collective boots at such a surge of digital disdain.

I love this quote: One user, called @carlyslaejepsen said: “my mum doesnt pay her tv license for me to be unable to use iplayer @BBCiPlayer [sic].” Aaaah, bless. I’m sure his mum will make things better.

Stuck for something to do? Try outdoor tango instead.

    Hi Clive,

    Loved this post – you really do have a way with words – however you totally lost me 3 lines in to the maths one. Enjoy,
