This is partly an appeal to boost the ego of someone of whom I happen to be fairly fond. (I'm pretty sure the grammar's right, there). Partly an experiment in meme phenomena. Mitch Benn's twitter
is pretty good as twitters go. He intersperses succinct observations and balanced opinions with really endearing commentary on his personal life and two daughters, and this morning he's putting himself through Happy Feet
in his dedication to fatherhood. If you follow Twitters, his is worth following.
If you don't follow Twitters, then this is really to you; go on the site, create an account you'll never use or look at, then follow Mitch, and never look at him again. He's tripled his followers in a weekend by appealing on the radio, so I'm extending that appeal to the internet.
