One of the main reasons people who don’t ‘get’ Twitter don’t like it is because they don’t think you can get a message across in 140 characters or less. Another reason is because they’re probably too far removed from Generation Me! Me! Me! to fully appreciate narcissism.
I for one, believe that narcissism is fuelled by followers. I mean, if no one was there to see your selfie, did you really take a selfie at all? Ok that was a dumb example but you get what I mean. Secondly, I totally believe you can get a message across in 140 characters or less. In fact, you can do entire recipes.
Like this @jamieoliver guy:
Still battling with my intense aversion to cooked meat, fish, eggs or basically anything I used actually like, it’s sometimes hard to decide what to eat for lunch. Talk about the ultimate in first world problems… I have a kitchen full of food (because great mum-to-be websites will tell you to stock everything, as you never know what you’re going to feel like eating) and I JUST DON’T WANT TO EAT ANY OF IT.
I’m sorry, starving children.
Luckily yesterday, I felt like I could go for some pancakes. Not usually a fan of pancakes, I didn’t have a go to recipe, but remembered Jamie Oliver’s super easy Twitter recipe, which by the way came in at only 93 characters.
I also recently received some of these Freshfields Fast & Fruity fresh fruit packs. Available from Coles from 29 May onwards, Fast & Fruity are 100% pure chunky fruit with no added sugar, preservatives, sulphite or sodium and is also gluten free. Personally, I like that they come in these re-sealable squeezy packs – a no mess way to serve and store the fruit.
I tried Be-licious berry and apple flavour with my pancakes today and I have to say, I was pretty impressed with the fruit. It’s chunky enough so that you can See Real Fruit and mushy enough to pour directly onto the pancakes. Or into a smoothie, or on your cereal or dessert or hey, straight into your mouth!
GIVE AWAY TIME! Freshfields are giving away more of these Fast & Fruity packs (with all three flavours) to readers. If you’d like to get a pack, leave a comment below including “Please can I try the new Fast & Fruity?”. If you don’t want to try it, just leave a regular comment anyway, they always make me smile
I have 5 packs to give away so leave a comment before 31 May and I’ll randomly pick 5 lucky recipients. Oh, and you’ve gotta be in Australia.
