So what do you do when you get an email like this:
Stephen Fry (stephenfry) is now following your updates on Twitter.
Well what else, you panic! Then you remember another brit who gave the most insanely sane advice. Why, who else but the great DNA, and his advice: DON’T PANIC!
So yeah, you tell yourself, he’s just being courteous and following everyone who follows him. And there is probably a perl script somewhere which is doing that on his behalf, or a python script for that matter (after all, do such quasi-religious wars mean anything when Stephen Fry is following you?). And then, you start feeling a little less stressed. I mean surely he’s NEVER going to READ any of your tweets, and you can bloody well keep on being the ignorant fool that you are!
There… that feels good already. So Stephen, I know you’re not really following me. And thank God for that (although I, and probably you too, don’t believe in him).
Anyways, the point is, Stephen Fry is twittering. And you can follow him: here. And in all probability, he’ll follow you too. After all, he’s (or his perl/python script is) following me of all people!
And if you don’t know who Stephen Fry is (I see you googling… don’t think no one is looking), well, I don’t know you either. Go eat a french fry. And go panic if you want. But don’t come near me. I’ll throw a paperweight at you.
