Well, well, well (three holes in the ground)! I didn't start getting into Twitter until a few months ago and, once on there, I realised that it was the perfect place for silly, quick one-liners and surreal musings. Also, like everyone else, it is also very good for promoting things that you're doing.
However, I mostly just do silly jokes. Not always funny but I try my best.
I am rather chuffed to have been included in The Huffington Post's top Twitter jokes today. It's based around the kerfuffle over 'faked' footage on the brilliant BBC show 'Frozen Planet' (with David Attenborough). The footage was admitted to have been filmed at a zoo on the programme's 'Making Of' on the website but, yet, the newspapers decided to flag up this non-story as a reason to criticise the BBC and Sir David. Nicely done, Media Types! Ahem.
Anyway, on Twitter, it was just an excuse for a load of funny topical jokes.
