Blogpost from me on Inside Guardian looking at implementing our short gu.com URLs into our 'Tweet this!' button, and asking for some views on some other twitter integration concpets that have been kicking around the office.
Last night the Mail published their election leader online, with a specific section rubbishing the Liberal Democrats for having a policy on 'body image' and the photoshop airbrushing of models in advertising. They say: "This is the stuff of the sixth-form debating society, not a serious programme for government". At the time they published it, the lead picture story on the Daily Mail website was: "Look no Photoshop: Madonna ditches the airbrush as she poses confidently in her undies like a model half her age"
The PCC survey made profoundly depressing reading - not because of the results but because of the methodology. Martin Moore writes thoroughly about it so thankfully I don't have too. My take on Twitter was that the PDF issued by the PCC seems to be missing the last question "Do you think your children should be fed to paedos, or do you think the PCC is just fine as it is?"
Some interesting thoughts on the unique challenges of registering children.
