Enda Kenny, or at least someone behind the scenes at Fine Gael, made a brief appearance on Twitter in February, but there's been no more activity since. Enda's sloganising would seem to suggest that he doesn't really get how it works...
Meanwhile, I was chatting to Mick Fealty of Slugger O'Toole fame earlier when I spotted out the window that Crumlin Road courthouse was ablaze. Mick blogged and I tweeted. I managed to get a few pics taken on my Blackberry and got them online via TwitPic. For better or worse, the Victorian courthouse is a Belfast landmark and it's a great shame that someone has seen fit to set it alight. At the height of the inferno, ten fire engines were deployed to tackle the blaze. Let's hope the main fabric of the building was survived.
Twitter also figured prominently yesterday with tweets from the peace protests across the north being aggregated on a live blog featured on Slugger O'Toole.
Last month I outlined my scepticism of the value of Twitter. Suffice to say I've been converted.
