How old do you have to be not to ‘get’ twitter?

I thought I was reasonably up to date but Twitter has passed me by – even though I opened a Twitter account two years ago.

But then I discovered that Dan Walker has in excess of 95,000 followers (he’s trying to get 100,000 by 31.12.11) and he writes nonsense much of the time. Admittedly amusing nonsense. So, I thought, if he can do it, so can I. Except I don’t have a couple of million people watching me every Saturday lunchtime.

I suppose I had better sign up for a course on how to get the most out of social media. Until then, it’ll just be you and me. Unless you can persuade your granny to tweet occasionally!
