That was the Tweet that was

Hey, remem­ber that post a few days back when I wrote about a column in Advertising Age that used one of my tweets to illus­trate the point­less­ness of Twitter? Looks like the magazine art­icle is now in a pass­word-pro­tec­ted area of the site, so you can’t hear it from the horse’s mouth, but said colum­nist has writ­ten a nice fol­low-up expand­ing upon his ideas, which you can read here. He seems like such a nice bloke that I almost regret call­ing him a mup­pet.

*UPDATE: Simon writes to tell me that this isn’t a pic­ture of him, by the way, it’s David Carey, former pub­lish­er of The New Yorker. OK, so I can be a mup­pet too…*

  1. I’m quite proud — I wrote his first line! Goes to prove that good writ­ing can’t hold a candle to raw aggres­sion.
