Just feel like I'm coming to grips with the Twitterverse. In some ways it seems an even more peculiar place than the blogosphere always has been.
Consider two random exchanges I stumbled on recently.
Sachin Tendulkar recently joined Twitter, setting hearts and fingers a-twitter everywhere cricket is spoken. I wandered over to his page at some point in the last couple of days, to find a message from him to another tweeter. Idly clicked through to that person's page, to find a series of tweets imploring ("please please please") SRT to say hello to him. Which eventually SRT did. Which prompted a ferventweet of gratitude ("thank you thank you thank you").
Fine so far.
Then I see on this same person's page two tweets directed at Salman Khan, the actor. They had me furrowing my brow, so I wandered over to check what SK had tweeted to prompt these. This was it, in full and verbatim: "Plz wl cm sania mirza."
"Please welcome Sania Mirza", for those who cannot grok twitter.
And this had our "please" and "thank you man" saying, and I paraphrase the two tweets here, "Definitely not! Couldn't she have found a boy in India? Sister of Kasab!"
