Jimmy Carr Tweets his apology
Whilst Jimmy Carr’s tax affairs are still being debated, it was interesting to see that he chose Twitter to release his official statement. Not as a link to a drafted piece, but a as a series of Tweets. It certainly would have created some amount of anticipation from the baying journos who were receiving the updates.
It’s also a good demonstration of how public Twitter is, as within minutes the statement is the lead BBC story as well. Is it really that much in the public interest?
