A Right Twittering

So Tuesday 20th January 2009 was a truly historical day. I decided to join Twitter to see what its all about. Basically, its a website where you update what you are doing and other people called ‘followers’ get an update in their feed. I still don’t get what I’m supposed to do given none of my friends seem to be on it but its become a serious addiction to comedians Jonathan Ross, Stephen Fry, Graham Linehan and Peter Serafinowicz who seem to be on it all day!

So as I sat down to watch to Barack (silent H) Obama bollocks-up his inauguration I had the amazing experience of having  text commentary from Linehan, Fry and Serafinowicz. I even joined in and had a bit of banter with Linehan! It was all very surreal and here were the best bits:

Graham Linehan    yukkkk….Rick Warren. 4:49 PM Jan 20th from TwitterFox

Graham Linehan “History is your story!” History’s our story, jackoff. 4:49 PM Jan 20th from TwitterFox

serafinowicz Watching Aretha sing… God Save the Queen?? 4:54 PM Jan 20th from TweetDeck

Me @Graham Linehan I regret agreeing to down a shot every time they say ‘history’, will I last Obama’s speech? 5:01 PM Jan 20th from web in reply to Graham Linehan

Graham Linehan    @Me you might actually have been better off with ‘hope’. He’s done that one. 5:04 PM Jan 20th from TwitterFox in reply to Me

Graham Linehan noodly jazz! they’re losing us! 5:02 PM Jan 20th from TwitterFox

Graham Linehan There’ll be an electric guitar in a second. like at the end of a movies about music teachers. 5:03 PM Jan 20th from TwitterFox

serafinowicz Now Yo-Yo Ma is playing I Am the Lord Of The Dance?? 5:03 PM Jan 20th from TweetDeck

Graham Linehan That was ‘Lord of the Dance’! Where was Terry Wogan? 5:05 PM Jan 20th from TwitterFox

Stephen Fry “We will raise science to its rightful place”. Yes. Yes. Yes!!! 5:15 PM Jan 20th from Tweetie
