History . . .
I love Twitter. I know, it's an occupational requirement - but I really do. The more so last night when I heard the French election results from Twitter's little bird. The online conversation carried on for quite a while. Eventually, perhaps inevitably, it wandered into a discussion about what President Hollande will mean for Africa. Will his take on 'Francafrique' be an improvement on his predecessor's attitude to the continent? This opened a few old wounds. Remember, remember - warned a few tweeters - Sarkozy's words in Dakar in 2007. It could well be the case that anything's an improvement on that.
