Ten Glorious Tests in Tweets
Wit and Wisdom in 140 Characters
The speed and flow of this unedited stream of consciousness is unstoppable. It pauses neither for drinks, lunch or stumps. It is pumping when you wake up, until your head hits the pillow; it respects neither day nor night. If the moment is not captured it is lost in the immediacy of what comes next. It is both a crowded conversation and the conversation of the crowd - a worthy rival to ABC Grandstand's calls from the ground or the flaggelating commentary from the press and sports columnists.
I have curated the best of what I pulled from the murky depths of this fast flowing conversation into a day by day account of the 10 tests of the Ashes summers in England and Australia, added a contextual underpinning for each day, and packaged the whole into book form for the twitter feeders, the ground spectator, and lovers of good humour generally. Enjoy the conversation.
