He Was Right the First Time

David Cameron was right about one thing; Twitter.

“The trouble with Twitter, the instantness of it – too many tweets might make a twat.”

On this, at least, we agreed. I have never liked the medium. A 140 character limit destroys any attempt at nuance and the site has become a vehicle for the mob to exercise its bullying. So, best left frankly.

Cameron had second thoughts apparently and joined.

David Cameron has signed up to Twitter, prompting users of the social networking site to inundate him with hundreds of hostile messages.

What did he expect? Someone –  probably not him –  will have to wade through the dross and weed out the crap. Doubtless also someone –  probably not him –  will have to start blocking those users who cross the line. All in all, a pointless exercise that merely gives his political opponents a stick to beat him with.

Okay, so I’m not exactly shedding tears about that. However, I can’t help but think that he was right the first time –  and he has managed to make a bit of a twat of himself from the off.

    Tend to agree, it isn’t often he is right.

    Far be it from me to defend the hateful Cameron but it probably won’t have been his idea.

    The meejah darlings are obsessed with Twitter and no doubt there’s a 22 year old Tory communications ‘expert’ who has been nagging for this.

    A u-turn too far…
