I have a follower on Twitter.
To many of you, that will seem a total non-event. A mere bagatelle. One follower? How pathetic. Why bother mentioning it at all?
Well, for one simple reason: I’m not on Twitter.
I don’t want to be on Twitter, despite the constant feeling of standing in the wrong room at a party. I occasionally catch snippets of conversation which sounds fun, but goddamn it, I’m working here – I’ve already got enough distractions, I don’t need another.
So how did I get a follower?
No wait, go further back: how did I get a Twitter account?
At first I assumed it must be some mistake. Some other Phill Barron must have set it up. It’s not me, I would have remembered.
Except … it’s been set up using my email address.
Which is weird.
So come on, ‘fess up: who did it? Who Twitted me? And why, for God’s sake?
