I've been to tweet 3000, not much has changed but they tweet underwater
The tweet for this blog post is my 3000th since joining back in March 2008. 3000 seemed like a good milestone to check out some stats and see what I could learn about my Twittering habits.

Football in Africa - how quickly they forget!
So much for footballing legacy! During this week’s South Africa – Ghana game I wasn’t able to find coverage on any major UK news website.
