Twitter weekly digest

I have been twittering for a long time, well since the Summer of this year, click on the More button to read some of the crazy stuff I have been writing over that time, apologies for its length (in fact it’s unhealthily long) but looks like the Twitter plugin has gone way back in its data. These are scheduled to go out each and every Sunday, so lets see what next weeks looks like! Hopefully shorter!!! P.S You can find me on twitter.com/nicklewis
