Toss 140: the columnists, digested
Posted by Martin Poulter on 21 July 2009
Toss140.net is a Twitter spin-off where users summarise media columnists in 140 characters. For example, a column in the Daily Mail is abbreviated as “Ban this sick filth. Just thinking about it is turning me on.” Gerry Adams in the Guardian is condensed to “Global economic crisis? War? Climate change? Let’s get our priorities right: I still want a united Ireland!” A Daily Telegraph blog is rendered as “Ed Miliband using wind power to SAP AND IMPURIFY OUR PRECIOUS BODILY FLUIDS” It’s the brainchild of Bad Science author Ben Goldacre, and you can participate yourself via Twitter.
