Did a memo go out?

It started as a trickle and now it is an avalanche.

I first noticed a couple of weeks ago a few journalists, churnalists and repeaters were starting to follow me on Twitter, then a few more, then even more and some are really obscure. Sure I had a few that were already, the heavy users and the like but the ones signing up now are just flunkies really.

It’s like they have all been on a course or got a memo or something. The funny thing is they are all set up the same way…so I’m thinking a course.

That would be typical, not ones to have any original thoughts about seeing that is out there, they wait till their overlords instruct them or send them a memo or on group hug bonding tweeting course or something.
