    Well, you're now a 'Friend'. Eddie - but am I your friend too? I can't work out completely how it works, but have posted three comments, so that will give you something to work on.

    So, are the ladies here present all of a twitter about Eddie's box?

    Is it another blog, or what?

    Looks like my research on Facebook may have had a point after all!

    But with MySpace, the Blog, Facebook and now Twitter will any of us have time actually to do anything?

    Marc, I do hope you got clearance for all the overtime you will now need to do to authorise friends!

    I am slightly amazed that the Beeb didn't go down this third-party route in the first place. Much cheaper and, usually, more reliable!

    Facebook is very much a side-project. The blog remains the home of interactive PM in cyberspace! :-)

    Apart from the tops of our heads, obviously.

    Can't you get a taller person to take a photo of His Lairdship?

    Alby (19) I've tried to get the pics to work - but they keep cutting my head off all by themselves. In the originals there's quite a bit of headroom. Maybe I'll use the Tardis one...

    Mr/s blode,

    No. On both of these 'new' sites, you can see that Eddie's still got some hair!

    Just click on the wee picture (maybe again) and you'll see.

    Don't think I'll have the time. But, Ed I, you're already a friend of Eddie.

    I had to register to see anything. How much junk email will that bring me? And I see that Eddie hasn't done anything for about 3 hours.

    There is a rule of bureaucracy (name forgotten) that says the more time you spend reporting on what you are doing, the less time there is to do anything; perfection is reached when you spend all your time reporting on the nothing that you are doing. Oh, must do my timesheet.

    NO! I'm not even going to look.

    And I was hoping that "change the Blog forever" was a reference to it all just running more smoothly. You know, like we were promised in March?... Ho hum.

    Choice of meanings in Chambers. 'a twitter' is a tremulous feeble chirping, or a flutter of the nerves; 'to twitter' is to make a succession of small tremulous noises, to palpitate, to chirp out, to twiddle. Or 'a twitter' is one who twits, that is, one who upbraids, taunts or reproaches. Or if you prefer, 'a twitter' is an excrescence on a horse's hoof. I mean, come on, does any of this sound like the Eddie we have come to know and love?

    (Mind you, 'a yahoo' is a brutal or boorish lout, so it could be worse I suppose.)

    If you don't fancy "We love the PM Programme" you can always opt for the more personal "I love Eddie Mair". How many FaceBook fan clubs does a man need?

    I kid you not! Unfortunately, Sequin doesn't appear to be admired as much...

    Ads? What ads? Grab Firefox and the AdBlock Plus extension and the vast majority of banner ads will disappear.

    Meanwhile, I can't be bothered with Twitter, but you'll find me on both Facebook and MySpace (profiles are virtually identical, courtesy of copy/paste).

    Competition time: locate the hill I'm standing on in the obligatory dodgy profile pic - there's a big clue in the background...

    Erm.. Twitter? I've just had a look, and I can't see the point of it really. I hardly have time even to keep up with this blog & flickr so there's s*d-all chance of me looking at Tw***er and, on one quick look it didn't really entice me in.

    Marc Blog Prince (10) - some of us already know what some others look like - we did it by that strange old-fashoined method of, well meeting up! ;-)
