Wittering On Twitter

Much of my work as a ward councillor and group leader doesn't merit a great long article. Some of it doesn't even merit comment at all. However the main reason that I started blogging in 2006 was to allow people to keep up to date with what I am doing. I would venture that most people don't know what their councillor does.

Twitter is a mini-blog based on text messaging. As an experiment, I'll try to keep my page (which is replicated in the top right hand corner of this blog) up to date with the various meetings and events. Let me know what you think. If you're that keen you can even "follow me" when you will get text message updates. Instructions for new users can be found here. Having said that, I can't imagine too many people that desperate to know what happened in Sutton's Pension Fund Working Party and suchlike.

Oh well, here's the leap into the unknown.

I've added your feed to Sutton Active.

UK twitterers don't get updates by text message any more as Twitter turned it off as it was costing them too much money. This is a great shame, though I think various people are working to enable this as a paid-for service.

You can still follow someone's feed on the web, in RSS and via various instant messenger programs.
