No danger of that if Google (Or someone else) buys them out.

Well I plan to use my Twitter over the race weekend at Silverstone. I thought it would be quite useful for the forum, I mean it would give another p.o.v of the weekend. And keep note of what was happening...

Virtually nobody uses Twitter for things like that unless it's ironic.

Yes, I found loads of old school friends who I hadn't seen since the beginning of High School in 2000, as I moved through Year 7, was nice to see them all grown up now
