Marital strife on Tweeter?

Are you a twitterer? Do you tweet? I have just started twittering, and unlike Facebook, you can sign up to "follow" anyone and you see all their status "updates". There is nothing else to it, you can post an update and comment on other people's updates, and that is the extent of Twitter.

There are only a tiny few councillors in Liverpool City Council who are tweeting. Me, Erica and Richard Kemp, Colin Eldridge and apparently Paul Twigger although I am not yet following him.

The following entries were on my Twitter today, I thought you would find them interesting. Just imagine, two councillors, married to each other, two computers, or perhaps blackberries, first of all in different places, then at home in different rooms, a husband on one, a wife on the other... now read on.

Louise this is bang out of line.

I thought it was mildly humorous myself.

There was certainly no malice intended, just a bit of harmless leg-pulling.

If you know Twitter then you will know that you type what you type in the expectation that and for the purpose of being "followed". It is not meant to replace email as a means of communication between people, but shows the world what you are up to. If people dont want to see their entries commented upon then it is best not to make any.

Okay then we'll call your post, malicious at worst and stupid at best then?

Louise Baldock said...

Definitely not malicious, I sit with Erica in a room on our own on a regular basis, I have not an ounce of malice in my heart for her. I am not a fan of Richard Kemp and he knows fully why that is, but that is between him and me, and nobody else.
No, I stand by what I said, I thought this was comical, and unless you have your head up your ass, you will too.

That is a bit rich coming from the party who dedicate a whole blog to malice against Louise

Louise shows malice for every Lib Dem there is, see above blog post for example.
