Today I made a new twitter friend. He didn't follow or say hello, but he appeared to have written a book and he introduced himself by sending me a link to his book on Amazon.
Now obviously, this is an unusual way to say hello on twitter, but surely, he wasn't trying to flog me his book, was he?
Then I got another notification. Maybe Trev has actually followed me. Maybe Trev does want to be twitter friends and we can chat about X-factor and TOWIE. No..
