Tories on your iPod
Phew - my prediction was accurate. The Conservatives chose not to imitate Labour in getting a young blogger to kick off their manifesto launch.
Instead the job was given to a rather older tweeter, @williamjhague, once the 16-year-old sensation of a Conservative party conference, but now the shadow foreign secretary.
That is not to say the Tories were any less eager than Labour to paint themselves as a digitally-aware party, keen to share their message using all the latest new media tools.
So the manifesto was available to read in a very slick document reader embedded on their website, or to download as a weighty 77.5MB PDF file.
Then you could listen to MP3 files dictating each section - or even download them to listen again on your MP3 player.
David Cameron said in his speech that the manifesto's invitation to join the government of Britain would be extended via e-mail, Facebook - and even Twitter, despite his earlier reservations about people who tweet.
A site called Tweetlection, which monitors party tweeting, shows nearly 1,900 Tory tweets in the hour between 11:30 and 12:30 when the event at Battersea power station was under way.
By contrast, Labour supporters tweeted around 1,500 times during its manifesto launch on Monday although overall they scored around 10,500 over the whole day.
But the Conservatives' opponents were quick off the mark with their rebuttal. Alastair Campbell - @campbellclaret on Twitter - was soon tweeting this:
"Tories have dropped commitment to 220000 new school places. In draft manifesto January page7. Now gone. See p53. Sink or swim"
And John Prescott's blog was quickly full of pastiches of the manifesto's cover, just as Tory bloggers had rapidly doctored the Labour cover.
But the Tories may have been more discomfited by this tweet from Richard Hughes, the drummer in the vaguely middle-of-the-road band Keane:
"told the tories played keane at their manifesto launch. am horrified. to be clear - we were not asked. i will not vote for them."
Oh dear, there's someone who is unlikely to be downloading the Tory manifesto on to his iPod.
