This afternoon, for a while, my Twitter timeline was filled with hearts.
I woke up this morning to reports on a tweet sent by US Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in response to last night’s Republican Debate.
The picture above of me and Tower Bridge was taken yesterday at City Hall, and is arguably one of the best views of London that I have ever encountered. I was there to listen to a debate at London House (in conjunction with London 2012 Olympic Games) featuring Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales. This post has […]
If you’ve ever heard any of my talks on digital culture, you would know that Twitter is my social network of choice. There are many reasons for this but one of the main ones is that Twitter has connected me with people that I would never in my life have imagined I’d speak to. Early […]
