I tried. For literally weeks. Well, alright, days. I said I was absolutely under no circumstances going to sign up to Twitter i.e. sign away yet more swathes of my day when could usefully be writing / making cups of tea / watching Doctors. As it is Myspace and Facebook require constant monitoring to find out what friends are eating / watching / poking each other with.
But then Facebook friend John Prescott (yes it is he, of two Jags, and large hairdoed wife fame) started twittering. And all self control went out of window and within minutes had got account and linked it up to Facebook and started following (aka stalking) random people.
But then noticed no one was stalking me. And am now suffering from troubling flashback to school netball / rounders / swimming / hockey / who gets to sit on non-weirdo lunch table etc, when perpetually got picked last. Is hideous popularity test. Stephen Fry has 50,000 stalkers. So am begging you, in spirit of preventing me having to lie in darkened room to banish painful school memories, to stalk me at http://www.twitter.com/joannanadin
