I have been a little distracted from blogging over the past week by matters temporal, but have been keeping my eye on the lawless, crazy and often profane and sometimes witty World of Twitter. Below is a random selection of those tweets which particularly caught my eye over the past few weeks. There is little surpise that the scabrous and sometimes scanadlouss wit of Old Holborn features prominently, my thanks to all who have shocked, entertained, provoked and informed. I recommend all the contributors and hope they enjoy even more followers.
Enjoy and, hopefully, as I believe is a customary exultation on Twitter: *Snork!*
