@thornae Solid influence. Now check out “How to Lie with Maps”, but ensure the latest edition.

@thornae Ah yes, I was wondering if anyone would cite that. :)

@morebento I’ll pot it into tomorrow’s solo podcast I think. @JohnBirmingham doesn’t need to hear this story.

@jplonie @kels_316 No, but he does seem overly concerned about immigration and purity.

@TevildoPofC He didn’t mention it, but we’d arrived at our destination and I was cursing him for the mental images up to that point. :)

@Busabx Yeah they kinda have an advantage here. I’ve asked them whether this is just hashtagged tweets or something wider.

via TweetDeck in reply to Busabx

@bastardsheep Did you use any of the hashtags though? I’ll ask whether this only counts tagged tweets.

@jplonie @kels_316 Pffft! I am scarier than any of those taxi drive… well, there’s this one guy who creeps me out a bit.

And then there’s some quotes which are kinda generic PR fluff. But I’m guessing they’ll have more data in the morning.
