Twitter Wisdom 2011 – Part 1

In my last post I explained how the combination of a new year and reaching 1000 Twitter followers had given me an idea – to get words of wisdom/profundity from every follower, and create a historical list that will last the ages…

Or something.

But I realised shortly afterwards that asking 1000 people individually ain’t the easiest of jobs – so this might be project for ALL of 2011… Anyways, here is the first batch of Twitter wisdom – thanks to all the contributors!
