Well, of course, as usual, the West End Whingers were way ahead of the rest of the pack on this having followed the second act of Gone With The Wind via Twitter from the comfort of a nearby hostelry rather than actually from the auditorium.
But, even so, we are thrilled to see that Lyn Gardner has picked up the Web 2.0 micro-blogging baton and is twittering her way through the Edinburgh Fringe so that we don’t actually have to go. Very thoughtful. But unnecessary as we weren’t going to go anyway.
Sadly she doesn’t seem to be doing it quite right – no blow-by-blow commentary from the actual performances, but it’s early days.
Anyway, we mustn’t be too harsh. Good to know that the critics are embracing the beastly internet thing.
