    Do follow me on twitter at motorhomenews just to be kept up to date but not overwhelmed with numerous pointless messages. This is NOT an official part of the MotorhomeFun site but a personal contribution from a motorhome owner!!

    Perhaps you could explain to the "great unwashed" out here exactly what "Twitter" is and why use it??

    Why ? - to be blunt. I do blunt as only a northerner can.

    When Facebook came out I fell for it, didn't like the way they kept trying to get a credit card registered, otherwise similar to a forum with added sugar - "do you want to be my friend?"

    I threw up and resigned.

    Never seen twitter 'till one minute ago. It let me in, which is one up on Facebook, but then all I saw were a mass of links - to here - do I need them twice ? Soon it crashed and said something like "too many twitters, try later". I really don't see the point.

    Unless the point is publicity for here in which case it's not for us but *them*.

    Sorry to be negative.

    I don't get it either might be good for advertising though. If I have the time I might look at it. Not that I'm an advertising Guru.:Eek!: It only occurred to me over supper this evening that with all the facts members seeing that Hitler parody If I had just given it a bit of thought and taken five more minutes to put an advert for The security handbook or the Travel Journal on the end of it, the club might be a bit richer tonight :Doh::Doh:

    I believe that Twitter, Facebook and Youtube are about to merge into a single website.

    It will be called 'YouTwitFace'.

    the original post looks suspiciously like advertising to me by someone who seems to be saying there are many pointless messages elsewhere, does he mean here I wonder.
    also is he a motor homer of a caravaner, does it make a difference, should we care, maybe members who are hells angels and like a bit of camping should be encouraged as well, the more the merrier thats what I say.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    now where is that hairy bikers naturist meet this weekend.

    Strewth, never saw that lot coming, but what was the twitter bit all about, twitter and bacefook appear to me to be very immature ways of blowing your own trumpet and not a forum for somebody of this importance.:Eek!::Eek!:

    I wonder if he has time to put forward a view on the absurd situation of block booking CC sites and then not bothering to turn up and leaving them empty so half us can't get a pitch when we want them ?

    Now that is worth twittering about.

    I'm puzzled by that statement .. what is a visiting professor ? Can anyone explain ?

    He's not on the university faculty so is it an honorary title ?
    http://www.buckingham.ac.uk/business/aboutbbs/staff/index.html

    Christopher Macgowan’s Education
    http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/christopher-macgowan/4/8a7/309
    Marlborough College 1960 — 1964

    also this information is wrong or out of date
    He is on the committee but not as chair

    No mention in the 2008 Queens Birthday Honours list... .

    puzzled even more

    thanks Olley ..
    so anyone who visits a uni to teach can be called a visiting professor irrespective of qualifications ?
