I can’t help being vastly amused that the latest victim of a Twitter Two Minute Hate is – Stephen Fry!
Here we have a man who makes his living entirely on his reputation as a wit. Unfortunately he didn’t get the memo that wit is no longer permitted.
You know things are getting bad when even someone like Stephen Fry thinks Twitter is “frothy with scum” and has “started to smell. Really quite bad.”
I’ve never had much time for Stephen Fry but I must admit to feeling a grudging respect for him now. At least he doesn’t seem to have issued the usual groveling apology. In fact he’s come out fighting with a stinging attack on the Twitterati on his website.
