David Cameron's Twitter 'error' on Absolute Radio

David Cameron set Twitter alight (yesterday) after an interview with Christian O'Connell on Absolute Radio. Leading in the opinion polls and potentially on course to be elected as UK Prime Minister next year, David Cameron was drawn into a discussion about Twitter, but a comment about 'too many Twits.....' pushed him into the top 10 most discussed topics on Twitter.

Interesting stuff, the destructive power of Twitter - even if you don't use it!

This ties in nicely with this article that I was reading earlier: http://bit.ly/4osTCo - even if that one is a little more inflammatory.

I think David Cameron is right. The 'instantness' of Twitter means that uncomfortable things will happen within organisations where people are using the service (though the benefits to an organisation should outweigh the occasional uncomfortable moment.)

Australian cricket suffered this morning. Hughes' tweet not only upset the Australian team management, but also made him look silly because his manager has declared that he actually runs it for him!
