AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

This afternoon I 'took part' in a social network pantomime. No, I don't mean a client presentation which went badly, but a 'performance' of Cinderella (mostly) which took place on twitter . Using the hashtag of #twitpanto there were over 600 messages of 140 characters or fewer, some from the 'cast' (mostly well-known UK bloggers or social network pundits) but the majority from the other users of Twitter. Lots of audience participation of the "Behind you!" and "Oh no he's not!" category made for an escapist hour and a half.

For myself, I've always believed that pantomime requires rhyming couplets, so most of my tweets were in that form. Of course, the end of any panto needs a song where the audience join in, and so a link was posted. And everyone was rickrolled, so maintaining another web phenomenon. So with that, I'll wish all my readers, wherever you may be, a happy Solstice / Yule / Xmas / Winterval / New Year / Hannukah / over-indulgence in wine, women and song.
