Meanwhile, on Twitter

Most of you know I’m not fond of social networks, but I’ve been unusually active on Twitter lately and it might be worth your following for a while.

Only do this if you’re on Twitter already though! Don’t join for God’s sake. Twitter is, generally speaking, crap.

But here’s what’s happening at the NE feed of late:

1. I’m trawling the New Escapologist blog archives for quotations, surveys and news items worth referring to in the book. When I come across an entry that’s aged particularly well, I share it under the hashtag #OldEscapologist. There’s been some interesting old stuff cropping up.

2. Citizen’s Income is getting so much media attention lately, that it’s not practical or desirable to post it all to the blog. So I’m tweeting about it instead since it’s of interest to some Escapologists.

3. I’m also lending my feed somewhat to the Green Party electoral campaigns in the UK, so expect a bit of noise about that for a while. If you’re not into party politics, I apologise. But the Greens are great and have many Escapologist-friendly policies and attitudes, so I’m doing my bit to rock the boat while there’s an historic chance of actually tipping it.
