After five months of life away from social media I have reactivated my Twitter account.
From time to time you will now be able to read news of what I am up to, along with occasional redirects to causes important to me.
I started work on a comedy series for CBS television in the US this week and I will certainly keep the @stephenfry feed up to date with information and pictures about this exciting new project as well as, perhaps, subjecting the world to a mini-blog or two on my website.
While I won’t be burdening you all with personal observations or visiting the Direct Messages page, Twitter can still reward with its marvellous uses as a bulletin board and information exchange.
Had anyone suggested that such a service might exist ten or fifteen years ago I would never have believed them.
So hurrah for upsides.
