Get a life

ACCORDING to reliable sources, more than 160,000 tweets were published on Twitter during and in the wake of the first of the televised debates between the leaders of the three main UK political parties – by almost 40,000 twitterers.

One has to wonder how close said twitterers were paying attention if they had time to tweet.

Much lauded and much maligned excelled itself. While some commentators might have said, with knee jerk predictability that twitterers should get a life, it does prove that a political conversation online is possible.
