I recently discussed Brighton & Hove Albion's promotion push with Channel 4 newscaster, Jon Snow. Well, 'discussed' might be stretching it a bit, but still.

I don't know about Twitter either. For me, it's become an oddly personalised mix of ambient musicians, witty microbloggers and very dull footballers.

You've got a couple of dull ex-cricketers, too.

Yes! Agnew doesn't help himself by tweeting abut 25 times an hour when the match is on.

Speaking of cricket, and indeed humorous microbloggers, I meant to show you this actually.

They are mostly him @ing 50 Cent, and various quasi-well-known music writers.

Brandon started following me, & I wanted to tell him that I liked what he wrote about his mother's death. In retrospect, yeah, what a dick move ...

yeah, "on the real"—parodistic use of outdated street slang always a sign of true asshatery.

it's how impressed he is with his own challenging opinions

unless there is a successive layer of irony here, in which case i hate it even more

The Walkmen kind of suck. Kanye _does_ suck.

This is not a radical position.

To be sure, murk sucks too, so I can understand where you're coming from. And if, as I said, it's not a radical or even interesting claim, there's no real reason to broadcast it.

On the other hand, Twitter is not a platform for radical or interesting opinions. Believe it or not.

Should I have put "challenging" in quotes

that was what I intended to convey
