Twitter, Polls, PR and Tea

So it looks like I am not alone on the sugar in tea front. Using Twitter, I setup a twtpoll for ask the UK PR twitter community about whether they have sugar in tea! Here are the results:

I am usually pretty healthy, but tea is my bad habit. Probably 3-10 cups a day, depending on where I am etc. So that is 3-10 tea spoons of sugar (not to mention the caffeine). Time for a change me I am going to try cut sugar and maybe tea in general is favour of a glass of water...wish me luck.

Through Twitter I have heard of Spotify, a free programme for streaming music. After a simple download you can search and listen to a huge amount of music, about 90% of my searches have ended in success (Obviously you need an Internet connection). Spotify has numerous licences so many artist are covered!

You can then create playlists and share them with your friends. Jed shared his Electro mix earlier, and here is my Rock through the ages playlist.

Basically it is pretty awesome!

Oxford Twestival

I went along to Oxford Twestival #oxtwestival last night at The Cape of Good Hope pub on Magdalen round about. Organised by @Jake, @colinmercer and @sylwiapresley.

I chipped in my donation to try and help raise the $1 million for Charity:Water that this Twitter organised meet-up is trying to achieve.

If you want to help this worthy cause, then donate via:
We had entertainment from the Funky Llamas, who were fantastic.

A little video clip from the night:

Well organised, good fun and a good cause. Well done to all at Twestival for sorting this, especially a very busy Jaz Cummins!
