Positive Twitter Day

Guido is supporting #PositiveTwitterDay today. Twitter, especially the political Twittersphere can be a horrible nasty place, well today Guido will do his Christian best to be nice to all in his tweets. The idea comes from the invariably polite Sunder Katwala.

A number of well known Twitter curmudgeons have already re-tweeted the hashtag #PositiveTwitterDay and entered into the spirit of the day. Guido for his part is determined to have civil, positive discussions today with the likes of Polly or Mehdi. The power of positive tweeting…


  1. 1

    Squatters’ rights are now wrong.

  2. 2
    Nothing better to do says:

    Sounds like BS to me.

  3. 3
    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    A Merry Christmas to All Our Regular Readers.

  4. 4
    smoggie says:

    Traffic should be well down then.

  5. 5
    Denis McShane's Shed says:

    Does that include Ed Balls? Can’t see that working.

  6. 6

    Can’t stand this any longer.

    Fuck off you cuпt.

    *thinks: jgm2 will be here soon…*

  7. 7 says:

    A good time to bury bad news.

  8. 8
    Fluffy bunny says:

    We should all join hands and save the world.

  9. 9
    Rabid Troll says:

    You mean I can take the day off? Oh well, off to watch C4 all day. Better to watch proper human endeavour than listen to the emotionally disabled parasites in the Westminster village.

  10. 10
    Gordon Brown says:

    Fraternal greetings Guido.

    Let’s share a crate of Guinness at The Westminster Arms later today,old chap.

    Ah! Monika says:

    Off Twitter but more importantly.

    Why has Guido not published the contents of Leveson’s recent ” thoughts ” sent to MSM Editors. He must know by now. Is Leveson even reaching the Blog others can’t reach?

  12. 12
    Positive friday:Everyones a winner says:

    I see Labour are already voicing their objections so why not include a clause in the legislation that this law does not apply to properties owned by Labour members of Parliament or indeed anyone else who objects to its proposals.
    Such people need only inform their local authority who can attend at their property with legally sanction plakards which can be affixed to their properties saying

    ” Squaters welcome here, please feel free and no legal action will follow”.

    That way everyone’s a winner.

    Is a person who uses a Twitter a Twit, just asking.

    I’m positive Ed Balls is a c’unt.

  19. 19
    Ah! Monika says:

    Come to think of it, Tweet Leveson’s ideas. Now THAT would be ” Positive “

    Saying that, and getting into the spirit of things, you ARE one of the good guys.

  31. 31

    Vegetable patches are for planting with seed.

    Perhaps your misspelling was intended to be done thus:


  32. 32

    I am not a Christian.

    Thank Christ.

  33. 33
    smoggie says:

  34. 34
    Ivor Tapeworm says:

    Isn’t this thing just publicity for, and trying to put a positive spin on, Twitter?

  35. 35
    SP4BS says:

    I’m getting the impression that you really aren’t a cat after all.

  36. 36 says:

    I thought that tomato tasted funny.

  37. 37
    open your heart on positve twitter day says:

    On the premise that you should try anything once, I think you should give it a go, it may be an eye opener.

  38. 38

    Catherine Brogan, from the campaign group Squatters’ Action for Secure Housing, told the BBC: “What we need is to tackle the housing crisis and not criminalise some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”
    Well tell the fuckers to work like most decent people………..

  46. 46

    Yeah – thank God I’m not either.. nor superstitious, touch wood.

  47. 47

    Try everything once EXCEPT folk dancing and incest. I think that just about covers all religions. Except the dancing bit in Helmand Province.

    Margaret Thatcher was a closet Tory #truthwillout.

    alexsandr says:

    who was that woman debating on toady just after 8. She was a supply teacher who does not work all the time. Says she is not qualified enough to get a full time job. Mebbe she needs to look at her career choices so she can support herself properly instead of sponging of someone else. or go and live with her mum.

    Twat Central says:

    Turn the volume down.

  54. 54
    Hang The Bastards says:

    I think a tweet that calls Menhdi a TVVAT is a positive tweet.

  55. 55
    Bluebottle says:

    I always thought that Twitter was supposed to be some sort of bastion for good.

    Why does it need a positive twitter day ?

    I’ll give buggery a miss too – giving or receiving

    it is better to give than to receive – although a nice little reach around never goes unappreciated, I find.

    Twitter users are increasingly buying followers in a bid to boost their online reputations, says The Sunday Times.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
