Such Tweet Sorrow

ryanrocketship on flickrSo, Shakespeare finally meets Twitter (I won’t provide the obvious portmanteau for this).  The Royal Shakespeare Company has decided to reach out to ‘the kids’ by ‘performing’ a modern version of Romeo and Juliet via the online platform of Twitter.

Whether this is an innovative use of new technology or a banal waste of time (I'd go for the latter) it shows one thing: Twitter is being used in all sorts of new ways and is no longer just a place for bored students to let us know what they had for breakfast.

Thanks to our resident IT geek Damien we’ve been on Twitter for a while now.  We use it to share TimeBank news as well as to promote interesting volunteering opportunities we hear about. So, if you work for a charity and are looking for volunteers we might be able to help out.
