being a fangirl helps no one

A limey hailing via the West Indies with a distinctly hybrid WI/USA/British influence. I'm into comics, knitting and fanfic at the mo. I started off life in fandom six years ago as a meta writer, and as a result, that informs my fandom interactions.

Usually, I don't involve myself in fandom dramas or personality wars. You come at the King, you best not miss. Just saying... now, how's about that cup of tea, then?

Some of Twitter’s more confusing Internet jargon—hashtags, @ replies, and manual retweets—no doubt add to the initial confusion. But in the future, the service may do away some of its more perplexing and insular language.

There goes the neighborhood.

What? Everyone knows what a hastag is. Gahhhh.
