I always thought, quite romantically perhaps, that the idea of social media was to bring people together. It was almost like in a more inclusive, closer-knit world, the opportunities to make connections with other human beings were more plentiful. We were ‘stronger together’ and connected in more ways. I was wrong. Social media is far … More Anti-social media
Some time ago I posted on here about Twitter not being real, about it being a ‘a meaningless yet useful tool for communication’. How haughty and superior I was, thinking that this thing didn’t matter to millions of people, that real connections weren’t formed in 140 characters, that people couldn’t love and hate – in … More I want to talk about Twitter for a moment.
Twitter, despite what you may think, is not real life. It’s a medium for communication – in tiny meaningless chunks – with little or no substance.

Try as I might, I can’t see England take this. I can’t see them getting passed the Germans. There is so much riding on this though, 44 years of hurt, and all that. We also have the trauma of ’90 and ’96 penalty shootout losses to Germany to put to rest. The last three England … More Something about a football match, or “can we dare to hope for an England victory?”
