Speeding off in the Tweet-mobile from London to Manchester, Team Twitter were feeling pretty grinny and supported as jokes for Foy's 10 minute stand up routine came flying in over Twitter.
Keep sending them in y'all and join us on:

A not so brief briefing, 2 hours later and Team Twitter are all excited, just for a change eh.
Armed with our camera equipment, GPS and lots of bright ideas, we're still none the wiser as to where we're going or what on earth the Current TV bosses will be making us do...It's going to be like Charlie Brooker and Euan McGregor riding around all over the shop, without the beards and the adoring fans, like The Apprentice...but with sex appeal and more swearing.

There you have it, Simon De Glanville a photographer from Peckham, has had his shots of pigeons published in the Metro for all London's commuters to enjoy.
A lesson for us all, appreciate the beauty of our urban park's wildlife! Forget your Scarlet Macaws or your Love Birds, it's all about the Pigeons.
The Facebook team (in Current TV's Facebook Vs Twitter challenge) foolishly used these wondrous urban queens as a metaphore for the Twitter girls, saying how easily they will fall into their trap.
Note the observations Simon De Glanville's made whilst trying to take these photos:
'I've learnt to recognise the point their desire for bread overcomes their fear of the equipment and capitalise on that'.
I'd like to point out that Team Twitter are hungry for success and have no fear of equipment!

Mission 2 Completed!
The Twit girls went to meet some clever clever Twitter connoisseurs at the Tuttle Club to find out how to reach their target of a 1000 followers and how NOT to misuse the precious. With the competition about to begin for realz on Sunday 7th June, Sylvia and Charlotte have resorted to cheap bribery and crappy incentives...it could work.

So, I've gone and broken a bone in my foot. I'm so disappointed with myself.
I tripped over on the way to work a few days ago, and after being forced to go to the hospital, I was told that I had broken the outer metatarsal in my right foot.
I'm heading back to the hospital to see the specialist this afternoon to find out whether I can still take part in the Facebook vs Twitter challenge in 3 weeks' time.
