Twitter is a very private place

I was just talking to someone who’s work overlaps with mine and has just joined twitter.  “It’s granny watch really”, she said.

Her grandchild is new and, like all new ones, quite demanding.  So her son/daughter need a simple way to communicate with anyone who’d like to know how things  are.  Doing this on twitter allows the grandparents to keep in touch, share but give the parents a little peace.

It’s but please don’t look – it’s a family thing you know!
