Interview with Robert
How long can you go without a tweet?
I have to admit that I can go almost a week without tweeting if I'm travelling a lot and busy with too many things.
What's your best tweet?
My best tweet would have had to be the one that got me an early reply from Stephen Fry and a DM in the same day.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
My initial 3 top were @StephenFry, @RichardBranson & @MCHammer, but they do, so I guess it would be @JohnCusack, he's very witty.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter is definitely for the intriguing and intellectual angle, Facebook I use to catch up on what old college friends are up to.
