Letter about Facebook and Twitter quoted in 'The Week'


#1

Letter to ‘The Oldie’, quoted in the current edition of ‘The Week’, from a man called Peter White in Derbyshire:
“I haven’t got a computer, but I was told about Facebook and Twitter, and am trying to make friends outside Facebook and Twitter while applying the same principles.
Every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel, what I have done the night before and what I will do for the rest of the day. I give them pictures of my wife, my daughter, my dog and me gardening and on holiday, spending time by the pool. I also listen to their conversations, tell them I ‘like’ them and give them my opinion on every subject that interests me…whether it interests them or not.
And it works. I already have four people following me: two police officers, a social worker and a psychiatrist.”
