I think that some of the funniest people to follow aren’t just the footballers. Piers Morgan gets on my nerves – what does he know about football?!? Constantly slags Wenger off as well but then contradicts himself.
Adrian Durham is also annoying – thinks he’s right with everything.
I still have an account, but for a few reasons, don’t really go on there.
I read for example from one particular SSN newsreader what her plans were for the evening professionally.
Then there was another putting out what bottle of wine she opened and she had replies like bees on honey.
I appreciate there are thousands of subscribers, but unless these people actually take the time to engage and interact properly with their fans, then I don’t see the point in following and brown-nosing somebody for the sake of it.
There’s only really a small handful I like in the industry anyway.
On the plus side of twitter, it gave me a few minutes of, albeit very minimal, fame. I was responsible for the twitter trend #Carlo2Villa, it trended nationwide and was mentioned in the Times by one of their journalists (we still ended up with the clown mind).
I don’t particularly like the abuse that comes out of there from some of the users.
Quite some time back, Stan Collymore was racially abused.
And most recently would you believe, Muamba was racially ridiculed on twitter by someone who claimed they only did this as they were intoxicated with alcohol – I think that culprit was given some sort of community service.
