The long Streets

Mike Skinner - like everyone - is now Twittering. Given that my Grandma has signed up for a Twitter account despite being dead for decades, you'd think this clumsy bout of catch-up would be something you'd keep quiet about. Oh no. There's been a press release:

It's fair to say that in the last week or so, Mike has taken quite a shine to Twitter. That, if you don't know already, is the hot new social website where you can tell people what you're up to in 140 characters or less. So far, Mike has posted 94 updates, telling us such things as how best to make tea, what he's having for dinner, which microphone Dr Dre recommends and whether or not his arms are in Moses-based agony.

The idea of such a long message promoting an idea which values brevity might be an in-joke. But, boy, wait until Mike discovers Facebook. A regular press release telling us how often he's tickled his Slide Pet pig and the changing status of his friends would come most in welcome.
