Twitterers' tweets are twaddle

Friday, July 15, 2011
The winners of the 161m EuroMillions jackpot were today identified as Colin and Chris Weir of Largs in Ayrshire, proving that paying attention to anything said on Twitter is strictly for the birds.

Largs is actually 500 miles from Clacton so I wouldn't even advise - dubiously anonymous Tweeters - to hold their breath waiting for a close guess rosette. As wild a suggestion as this is, next time, maybe Metro could try asking someone from, oh I don't know, Camelot?

Today's 'random Twitter nuggets featured in Metro' include, "rip-off Britain" in response to a story entitled, 'Apple users are un-appy as prices rise', strangely enough also penned by Fred Attewill. Somehow I suspect he's been studying the Metro's regular 'From the Department of the Bleedin' Obvious' column without entirely grasping the concept. Did he truly expect "disgruntled app users" to do anything other than "vent their dismay"?
