Quite a few members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, and not a few Big Names in Canadian media, talk to each other on Twitter. It’s fascinating to follow – like listening in on a party line.

In an unrelated matter, we’ve been drinking strawberry daiquiris, and I’m using an iPad to post this on QuickPress.

You’re welcome.

    I’ll bet you a Daiquiri that they’re just as full of shit on Twitter as they are in real life.

    “Sticky strawberry sweetness? Yuk. Or greeny green minty shit. Or worse, …”

    The blogger on QuickPress refers to chocolate fillings. Also applicable to drinks, in my humble opinion.

    I am pouring myself a glass of cool Chablis. Vive la France!

    Personally, I’ve always found that having a good relationship with members of the fourth estate does wonders for one’s political objectives. Long may they chatter on! God, love them.

    I’m a big fan of strawberry daiquiris but still a Molson kinda guy I see in some recent tweets that the same journalists that you speak of are getting together for drinks to see who some of their non journalist followers are.
