Me, I'm @theFourthReich and @GarySCompton

Chopper is @StephenJPoore others are @StephenJSweeney - Scarfy

@jimworrad is JWO

@AnneLyle is Anne Lyle

@MarkRobsonAuthor is someone who writes really good books

@IanWhates - Self explanatory

Have I forgot anybody? Not sure let us know your on and we might follow you, if your interesting enough!!

Re: Twitter - Are you on it?

I dont have a twitter because I didnt know I knew anyone on it who could tell me why I should.
Is it awesome? a couple of the youtubers I follow have them I think (it gets mentioned now and again by one of them) but I dont want to sign up for something just to "stalk" internet celebrities.

Re: Twitter - Are you on it?

I have Twitter (sounds like an illness!) but I rarely use it. I don't really get the whole point of it. I'm not sure how you get people to 'follow' you and I never have much interesting to say anyway!

I think I'm @emizzy but I'm not sure how I find out for definite.

Re: Twitter - Are you on it?

I do mostly use it for stalking the odd celebrity, but it's also good as a springboard for finding out bigger stuff. If Twitter's starting to go crazy over something, then it usually leads me to go off and find out about it. Keeps me up to date with the interwebz. Also love it when big political things happen. It gets so hilarious.

Mouse, that is indeed your name on there!

Re: Twitter - Are you on it?

I firmly believe that Twitter is the result of a Chinese conspiracy to bring about the fall of Western civilisation. When it happens, don't say you weren't warned.

It's not that bad.

I'm just having a conversation with Piers Morgan and Lord Sugar about the Toon's spanking of Man Utd

I don't tweet, I don't Facebook, how come I don't feel like I'm losing something from my life?

Myself and Gary will be discussing this statement, and YOU, on Facebook later (not Twitter).

Re: Twitter - Are you on it?

it's definitely... more-ish. a good thing i am currently unable to access the interwebz at work, else i'd never get any writing done at all. nice to be able to catch up with people i met at AltFiction; also a good tool - how to learn to rant in public in less than 140 characters...

Re: Twitter - Are you on it?

It did take a while to get used to the whole 140 characters. Annoyingly short. I'm too verbose.

I'm too caught by the Facebook to extract myself, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who didn't have it now.

Oh, duh, and I'm @FacetiousRemark.
