I’ve been a fan of Twitter for some time now. Something about summarising little moments in my life and logging them just seems to spin my wheels.
There are a few nice unique twitterers out there. Mostly real people but also some not so real. The Tower Bridge Twitter feed is one of the decent automated ones. The artificial (non-human) twitterers usually amount to no more than a glorified RSS feed like the various news twitter feeds that throw headlines at you, but I really like the Tower Bridge one.
I like the idea of an inanimate (although Tower Bridge is probably one of the most animate of the inanimate) London landmark talking to me via the Internet. Especially one that can effect the traffic directly outside the office. I have a silly posh deep male voice in my head when I read it – a bit like a loyal butler.
I am opening for the SB Cabby, which is passing upstream.
For those of you that don’t know what Twitter is, it’s a microblogging system that asks its users to answer one simple question: “What are you doing?”
