    Eh??? Twitter? You gotta be kidding, right?
    Twitter is so over and not before time. A vile idea.

    1. Twitter is over?

      Since when is 175m users a “dead” service?

        @Will…
        ….175 million and dropping like a stone…on average 50,000 a week drop the gossip bird;
        roughly 8% more than are joining weekly.

        1. Actually, Twitter is growing, not falling. Its the growth RATE that’s falling.

            @Will…
            …..that’s probably the reason this story has had soooo many comments…not. Article in the Times last week reported that it Is dropping and that celebs in particular were leaving in their droves. Quite a few high profile “tweeters” dropped out recently and this is set to continue as result of the poor regulation and the rising homophobic and other abuse emanating from this useless app. Too easy to set up an account apparently.

          2. That may be so, and I would agree that is the case, but that’s anecdotal evidence. The figures are quite clear and not in dispute:- Twitter, is far from dead….. yet.

  2. It will be interesting to see the total number of people accessing the service today and to see what C & W workload is like?

  3. Anything that gets the importance of testing for both HIV and other STI’s has to be a good thing.

    56 Dean Street are very pro-active in what I call “practical prevention initiatives” and are working with several organisations to extend testing services for gay men. All good stuff me thinks

  4. The poor level of interest in this article and other recent articles where initiatives to improve the sexual health of Gay men is quite shocking and worrying……….

    Yet if you put up an article about HIV rates or anything related to HIV then there is huge interest – with many of the comments being negative / out of date / having a go at HIV charities etc.

    Seems that when good initiatives are reported they are of no interest other than to engage in a side debate about the merits of twitter for instance.

    Very disappointing in my view!

  5. Too much twitter on here!
