My mate tweeted "anyone want to give me a job in Munich?" and a company in Munich tweeted back "send us a CV and we'll see what we can do". SORTED.
this is the kind of stuff that may swing me
well it led to Twitter, had been @ing (hate that) back and forth with a mate, mentioned I was out of work, and my new boss who I'd known through a friend of a friend saw it, and dropped me a DM and 2 months later, I start tomorrow.
I find myself reading a lot more, and finding out more, I used sort pick up little online gems form here, and news from RSS, but I get both, and a lot simpler in one place on Twitter.
And cos Stephen fry follows me on it. Lovely Stephen.

i don't know hat to do
yet i have no doubt in my mind that within a few days from now i'll be addicted
it changed to three at one point but the third one was a spammer or something.
