Mandrake Joins Twenty-First Century

With the axes swinging over at the Telegraph, their new “digital first” mantra must really be hitting home as even their most old school of correspondents are taking to the internet. Tim Walker, editor of the Mandrake column, has signed up to Twitter. The somewhat aloof diarist and noted wit seems to be getting the hang of it.

    …. an odd cove, all Brylcreemed and lavender water, pre-occupied doing waspish theatre reviews, then wondering why he’s dropped (as in Brick) doing serious political and press reviews.

    No time Darlings, have to be at another first night then drinkies… not trolling all the way up to BBC North either, and Osterley without a limo just not on..
