For those of you, like me, who simultaneously loathe and love Twitter, you’ll love this clip. It was sent to me by friend of mine and fellow Capetonian Rob Broster who is of the former camp, without much of the latter.
(PS: Apologies for the double post on Twitter, but I’ve only just resuscitated my blog which flatlined yesterday).
