Yesterday, I was taken by the notion that I should acknowledge my 9000th Twitter follower with a blog-post, whoever he or she …or it …may be.
Serendipitous? Risky? ….Well, yes. After all, it may be a nutter or a liberal, a poker or golf freak or indeed a twitterbot. In all probability it would be.
Nevertheless, the die was cast. The rule was set.
I resolved to blog on follower 9000 whoever he, she or it turned out to be. No tricks. No poetic licence.
It was to be a gesture intended as a thankful celebration of the glorious and provoking arbitrariness of the Twitterverse.
