Missing the point spectacularly

You know twatter? That thing that allows sad fucks to dribble on in 140 characters about how they're having a cup of tea to their equally no-mates saddo fellow twats? Well, the government has decided to start twattering. And needless to say, they've released a 20-page tome on how to fucking use twatter, complete with nonsense like "thought leadership" and "qualitative assessment".

And not only have they utterly missed the issue of brevity, but they actually go on to say:

use holding replies where answer will need research; (only if swamped) respond to "themes" not individual replies

In other words, treat twatter like it's a fucking parliamentary question and when you don't feel like listening to the proles any more, go into write-only mode.

Jesus, what a useless bunch of fucks.

Despite Kerry etc being wrong a lot of the time shealways manages to respond personally and directly.

That's great, respond to themes, in other words. Ignore people but pretend you're listening.

I was under the impression a lot of big government departments blocked Twitter anyway..?
