Now on Twitter

Okay, I’ve decided to give it a try: you can now follow F&T on Twitter.

The psychology behind Twitter is, I believe, best summed up in James Joyce’s story, “A Painful Case” (published in Dubliners, 1914). The story’s character, Mr James Duffy, is described in this way:

“He lived at a little distance from his body, regarding his own acts with doubtful side-glances. He had an odd autobiographical habit which led him to compose in his mind from time to time a short sentence about himself containing a subject in the third person and a predicate in the past tense.”

You go Mr Duffy. Don't listen to the other voices, just the ones in your head.
