Mark Krynsky posted a interesting post on Twitter (sorry, I simply can’t bring myself to call them ‘Tweets’) inviting readers to share their first ever Twitter post.

Trawling through my own Twitter archives, I noted my first ever post was: ‘just signed up. never thought I would’ on 9 November 2007 although I had eariler aired my disdain on this blog way back on 12 March 2007.

Perusing the archives of my own continuous stream of inance drivel did unearth the odd gem - well OK then - the occaisional notable one-liner in a continuous stream of inance drivel.
