At last! It’s my official charity retweeting policy

April 27, 2009


I have been receiving a few requests for retweets from people on Twitter who are engaged in various worthwhile charity doings, and up until now I’ve been dodging a decision on what to do about them. Sir Stephen has this to say about it, and my problems are similar, though obviously on a much smaller scale.

Basically, if you do one, you have to do them all, and if I do them all, eventually my Twitter feed will just be an endless stream of charity requests, and that’s no fun. Also, it won’t be much use to the use to the people who are looking for publicity if people start unfollowing me as a result of the flood.

So because I’m lazy, and not clever, I’m just going to copy what Mr.Fry’s doing.  Put the hashtag #glinnerRT somewhere in the body of your post and every week I’ll pick one at random to retweet. Can’t say fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff….can’t say fffffffffffffffffffffffffff…can’t say ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff….can’t say ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffairer thhhhan ttttthat!
