My Monday morning news via Twitter

I know there are heaps of you out there who don’t get Twitter and some who don’t want to get Twitter. But for those of you who would like to understand why intelligent people bother with it, here is a selection of what I found in my tweetstream this morning. (My tweetstream is what appears on my screen when I go to Twitter – it is made up of the tweets of all the people I follow. The other thing to explain is that when you see gobbledygook in blue, it’s a link to an article on a website.)

First, the good news – Sally Pepper of BBC Radio Derby liked Plotting for Grown-ups…


Then the bad news. I had missed Wendy’s tweets the day before, but knew, thankfully, that she was OK:



Then some puzzling news (which I explored further) – a BBC journalist had been stopped from filming an anti-government demo of 50,000 people outside the Tory party conference:


Then a mishmash of tweets –the first one fun, the others not:


Links to news on the question of Israel:


And news (which is not really news) about the treatment of the Palestinian people:


I also found a lovely pic of Bamburgh Castle and some happy news about a birth.

I’ll stick with Twitter for now.
