December Post of the Month

As we are constantly being reminded, 2008 was the year of Twitter, the new social networking marvel that will revolutionise our lives and provide lawyers with new and wonderful marketing and other opportunities. Indeed, follow the 'right people' on Twitter, and you will be bombarded with cunning schemes as to how it can be used. However, it takes true genius (or perhaps just a sufficient quantity of red wine) to come up with a genuinely novel way to use Twitter. One such genius is Charon QC, who last night treated us to a whole new entertainment form, the 'Tweeplay'.

"At a loss as to how best I could amuse myself this eve of the New Year, I thought it may be interesting to re-take France for our Nation and report events as they unfolded on TWITTER." So begins a surreal tale of an "unauthorised personal invasion of La France", involving a number of other Twitter luminaries, a pheasant, various items of clothing, and ending up with a meal in Paris. My December Post of the Month can only go to Charon QC for 'We sailed against the French… a short *Tweeplay*….', the best use of Twitter that I've yet come across. We may have lost Pinter, but we have gained Charon QC.

The prize? Well, it can only be a lifetime's supply of the virtual 'red stuff' - we must, after all, ensure that the ideas keep flowing...
