It would seem that we’re selling off our newsletter for parts.
Following cricketers on Twitter is actually pretty boring. James Anderson and Graeme Swann are smart and funny and Dale Steyn used to be, but the rest are generally either illiterate or don’t know when to shut up.
The original subheading of our new Cricinfo feature was ‘braving cricketers’ “banter” so you don’t have to‘. That’s basically the premise. There is some good cricket stuff on Twitter, but JESUS CHRIST CAN YOU STOP GOING ON ABOUT NANDO’S FOR FIVE MINUTES.
So yes, there’s also bad stuff, but hopefully some of that can be made entertaining as well. The Twitter round-up will develop over time, but we’re fairly happy with the first one and a couple of bits have the whiff of being regular features already.
Being as it’s weekly, we aren’t going to link to every instalment from here, but please try and follow it if you think you might like it. There doesn’t seem to be any special Twitter round-up subscription option, but if you know what you’re doing with RSS feeds and that, this is our author page and they should all appear there.
