Much talk and chattering about the fact that @Oprah has arrived on Twitter. Mostly there seems to be general snobbery and a feeling that she's going to 'spoil' it by introducing twitter to the mainstream (didn't we hear all that before when @wossy joined?). What nonsense. How can someone else joining Twitter possibly spoil it for those already there (apart from an increase in spammers but heh ho). If you don't want to read their tweets, don't follow them. There's even a site where you can prove to the world that you're so clued up that you were here before Oprah. Oh dear.
The truth is that however much early adopters like to bleat on about how great Twitter is, really they want to keep it as a little, secret club. I've been on Twitter since 2007 and yes it is slightly weird now that it's so mainstream but so what, that's the beauty of the digital world – things move fast, change and develop. PR consultant Kami Huyse sums it up best with this tweet – I couldn't agree more.
