I've seen so that's Freema, Noel, John, Karen and Arthur, new series companion wise who's on Twitter now.

Just Billie, Catherine, Alex and Jenna as well as Christopher, David and Matt to go now.

I can't see Christopher Eccleston going on Twitter. My respect for him will plummet, if he does.

I think both Matt and Chris are far too classy for that particular playground for cretins.

She seems really lovely from her tweets It's fun being able to 'follow' the cast and crew (that's not meant to sound creepy, haha).

I'm not sure about Matt - time will tell.

I'm a bit surprised that Tennant isn't on Twitter - although I love him madly I don't have a high opinion of his intelligence (maybe I'm wrong).

I bet Billie would be on Twitter, but her lovely husband also has too much class, so dissuades her from joining.

Hmm well all I ever see Tennant doing these days is pratting around with Branson so it doesn't bode well. I think Matt has been quite scathing about Twitter in the past.

I think you're wrong to assume Twitter says anything about your intelligence, some of my groups are on there for news about the campaigns and they are very sensible. It's not all 'Katie Price got divorced and I'm having a burger, lolz'

Sorry, intelligence was the wrong word. I'm sure it has it's uses. I just think people "following" celebs and lapping up their every word is a tad pathetic - and the sort of celeb who tweets what they have for dinner must be self-obssessed beyond belief.

I think someone like Chris would have better things to do.

Just seen your PM btw - have they been reading our posts? Is this violence a response to the fate of Lucie?

True but he did tweet for a day on the BBC America account last year.

People Tweeting what they had for dinner, when they're going to bed etc seems to be a problem that's all over Twitter and Facebook, it's not just celebrities that do it. Annoying, isn't it?

1. I doubt it but maybe. 2. Don't know, I haven't heard it. I just found that on someone's Tumblr while I was looking on Google for something else. What do you think?

I can't wait to find out - I can't imagine the lovely, calm 8th Doctor going doolally!

Well TBH I don't think he would have been particularly calm or lovely in the Time War either, so yeah I can imagine it.

(Oh and I wasn't Googling 'Gallifrey burning' either before you say it! )

You're probably right about him being calm in the Time War. He'd still be lovely, though.

It never occurred to me that you had Googled "Gallifrey Burning", but as you're so keen to deny it.......

To be fair, Twitter is like anything - it simply depends how one uses it really. I talk mainly about TV and media stuff and link things that pique my interest. I rarely talk about my personal life, because I'd prefer not to be honest.

I'd imagine that Eccleston wouldn't be the type of person who'd do the same (none of the Whoverse people seem to from what I often see).

Again, it depends on how one uses it really.

Funnily enough, Billie's husband is on Twitter, so it's a little surprising she's not to be honest.

I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see Jenna on Twitter until after she's left Doctor Who. Arthur was on it before joining the show and Karen as she was leaving it.

Boring answer, I was just seeing what his outfit was like after they changed it, because someone on G+ mentioned it.

Sorry for getting your thread hijacked OP.

Sir Anne Jones cleavage. That is all.

sorry for going off topic but it had to go somewhere and a new thread would be a bit gratuitous.

You mean Suranne Jones? Was that an autocorrect?
And did it have to go in the thread I was trying to get back on topic? Oh well no point in hijacking another one I suppose.

I believe it was once described as social networking made for smart people, backed up by Stephen Fry being on there with many followers. Celebrities shouldn't be looked down on for using twitter and anyway, losing respect for someone because they use a social networking site is pathetic.

So you never saw 'Spies Of Warsaw' on BBC 4 or BBC HD then recently?

Exactly, people like to get all smug and superior and look down on twitter from their high horse but the fact is, if you're seeing posts that annoy you, then you are using it wrong, not the people posting.

You have the option to make it completely tailored to you.
If you find a celebrity annoying, don't follow them!

But if you use it to only follow people in your life and news accounts from things you actually WANT to hear from (I'm a formula 1 fan so it's great for me to follow F1 journalists and commentators for an inside scoop into that world) then you'll get the best from it.

Then if you post genuinely interesting or witty things and join in with a hashtag or two, people will start following you as well.

For me its brilliant because I have a data cap on my phone and it's a lot better to log in and communicate with people on twitter than log into my facebook account and have to wade through 30 spam notifications for games I don't want to play and events I don't want to or physically can't go to before I get to the 5 or so notifications that are actually for me.

Good to see Freeman on it, and even those names listed that don't have it I would wager have an account under a false name that they only tell their actual friends about.
(And I'd also bet that due to popularity, those that DO use Twitter probably have a secret second account because their main one gets overwhelmed so much)

I wouldn't lose respect for just anyone, but I would for Chris. With most people I would be totally indifferent as the Twitter thing is not something I give any thought to at all.

It's because I don't see him as the sort of twit who would have to twitter on about trivia. Like Stephen Fry, for instance.

Or to have to have other twits following him in order to convince himself of his own worth, or "smartness".

If he did, I'd realise I was wrong about him, and the respect I have for him would evaporate.

I'm quite sure no one, including Chris, is the least bothered whether I respect them, or think them pathetic, or not, and vice versa.

No i agree with Granny. Sure the argument about such things only being as useful as how people choose to use them is usually a fair one. But in the case of Twitter I am afraid anything that encourages such rampant self absortion not to mention the fact it actively limits expression to the level of pithy 140 character soundbites means it is a very stupid and detrimental thing. It is mostly a combination of lonely people talking into a void where no one is listening and celebrities either trying to enhance their brand or embarrassing themselves. I have lost respect for many a famous person through being subjected to their twitterings. I preferred it when the great and good retained a bit of mystery. Twitter is an awful, awful thing which reduces discourse to the level of a Facebook status. It is mostly populated by idiots who have nothing to say but are damned sure they are going to say it anyway. Miserable.

and I haven't even mentioned how the old news media have resorted to using Twitter as some sort of gage on public opinion. Which it certainly isn't.
