Social media addict, Billy Granite from Rochdale, has decided to stop his attempts to bring virtual interaction into real life following a number of embarrassing incidents. His latest habit saw him sending out ‘oral retweets’ of conversations he was having.
‘When he asked me what I thought of our boss by the water cooler, I was honest in my answer,’ said colleague Sue Mackey, ‘but I didn’t expect him to shout across the office “Retweet Sue: our boss is a bit of a c**t”.’
This is not his first attempt at bringing social media to the living. He failed in his mission to bring Facebook to the streets after being beaten up 12 times in 5 days for ‘poking’ people on buses and running up to strangers shouting ’can we be friends?’.
