North Korea (and Our Man in Abiko) on Twitter
Our Man was in a funk last night. Not a Sly and the Family Stone kinda funk, more a workshy-wish-I-was-doing-something-else kinda funk. So he imagineered a solution (do tossers really say such things or is that sooo 90s now?) Why not get down with the kids and join the Twitter community? (er, because it's a massive waste of time, and who in their right mind is interested in what Our Man is doing right now anyway? Actually, he is drinking a Santory Malts if you must know). Well anyway, despite not really understanding what it is and how to do it, he's jumped head first into the molasses. You can follow his fascinating musings in 140 letters or less on Twitter here and there is now a slightly delayed update to this high-tech haiku on the right-hand column under the readers' comments.
Anyway, to mark this auspicious occasion, here is a random roundup of what other folk are saying on Twitter about the issue of the day: North Korea. Take it away Twitterers...
Al Gore, CurrentTV Chair May Go to North Korea to Help US Reporters - yes, we were waiting for this, go and go quick!!!
north korea needs to stop being so rude
I'm certain the United Nations and Hillary have North Korea's Kim just worried sick
Vigils Held for US Reporters on Trial
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha looking at north korea through google map?! u r seriously random but i still love u haha
Wondering why they are sending Al Gore to North Korea for negotiations. Isn't that Carter or B. Clinton's realm?
Can we send Rush to North Korea, it may be a good home for him
North Korea's Coat of Arms has a hydro electric power plant in it. Now how awesome is that?
One thing that will stop rocket to Alaska?? Threaten to deport Palin to North Korea.
By the way, the earliest Twitter post (Tweet?) about the trial of the two reporters was five days ago. First Our Man heard about it was yesterday in the Japan Times. Maybe there is something to this Twitter thing, eh readers?
