The perils of being in the public glare and the readiness of anyone to expose your latest nightmare. That, in a word, is social media. If one person sees or hears it, beware. It may soon go viral. Here’s a sample from the part 24 hours.

Roberto managed to not get tackled too hard by ‘Super’ Mario Balotelli, when he managed the man-child, but the ball clearly got the better of him, all tangled like a plate of spaghetti. He’s obviously done some break dancing in the past.

Honestly, I’ve watched Fox News once, if that much, and never a whole broadcast. People say it’s dangerously ill-informed. I can see what they mean: @Independent: Fox News mocked after ‘expert’ says Birmingham is ‘totally Muslim’ http://ind.pn/1xTwbDa Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 11.54.10 AM

Fortunately, for the numskull, he saw the light of incessant mockery, and has since apologised: @Independent: Twitter responds to Fox News’ Birmingham claims in the most British way possible #foxnewsfacts http://ind.pn/1xTIVtt

Part of Twitter is ‘wit’ and also ‘titter’, and this says it, perfectly. Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 11.56.43 AM
