I have a feeling that people outside the UK might not be able to view this, but hopefully some people can. Stephen is talking about twitter in the clip at the link below, particularly about how he is now careful about giving away his location in case the paps are about, and how helpful all the suggestions were when he had a bat in his house:

That would be me.

Don't worry. I could view the marvellous Tweeter insights of Stephen, and I'm not in the UK.

You guys are fast! I was just about to post this.

Indeed, those outside of the UK can view this. The ones we have most trouble with are those requiring iplayer.

I guess the downside of his popularity is the lessening chance of getting a personal reply :'(

Yes, that's the one and only downside.
Although, I don't take it to heart if I don't get a reply because I know thiers a huge amount of people fighting for his attention.

But don't you only now feel special for being one of 32 thousand that Stephen follows. Now hitting 60 thousand, he doesn''t follow half of his followers.

I do hope he stays on Twitter for a good long while. : ] He's definetely a Twitter addict and I love it. xD

Recently he's been really good about replying to tweets. There seems more @replies from him than normal. It seems all wossy does is reply to his followers.

I wonder if there's a way to see what number follower you are of Stephen's? If that makes sense. Like, who was first to follow him, 50th, 100th, etc.

Aw wow thanks for that interview ggg, I loved it :D. It helps to match up the Stephen we know 'off the telly' and the Stephen on twitter, which I've always had a little trouble doing in my head :D. So cool though.

Indeed! Our vital statistics as his very own Fluffettes :D. Well all of ours must be fairly similar, as we pretty much all leaped on it at the same time, and I imagine (being as we are ensconced in his virtual living room) that we must have been fairly quick out of everyone, though I can't remember how many he had when I joined. Don't suppose anyone mentioned anything when we first started...*heaves out tome of old threads and pours over them meticulously and with a glass of red wine*

Ah ha!

It's crazy. In the span of under 24 hours, he already has well over 3000 followers, and is following some 2900. I'm one of the >3000, but not of the 2900

http://www.stephenfry.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3157

so we were (those of us who joined up in the first buzz) in the first 3000 that joined. I guess that many couldn't be off the forum could there? No, that's silly. But then I have no idea how many active users there are on this forum, and there are at least another amount as big as that of lurkers, as this forum has so so many. Maybe they were just over active people already on Twitter.

Hmmm....

Found out that Stephen made is first tweet on Oct. 9th at 5:32 am. At 2:22 am the same day, I got the holy "Stephen is now following you on Twitter" email.
