did he do anything other than block people on twitter? because that's not interesting
If my mate expresses a fondness for something I think is shit and I gently mock him for it, he's not going to punch me in the face and tell me to never speak to him again (well, he might, but for the sake of argument, let's say not). Principally, because he can tell from my body language, my mannerisms and the tone of my voice that I'm not just being a cunt.
Whereas on the internet, something like that can come off as rude & provocative. Not that I advocate the way he publicly flogs them, but it's somewhat understandable that people may misjudge what is intended as light hearted debate.
Twitter: media wankers and politicians being wankers.
And every report on a twitterstorm ends up looking like a dyslexic transcript of a fight between a pair of bickering six year old siblings.
