#meetandtweet (Declan Dineen)

By | Published on Saturday 23 August 2014

‘#meetandtweet’ is the Dave Gorman-like tale of writer @DeclanDineen and his attempt to meet all (well, 150) of his Twitter followers. The story went viral, ending up everywhere from the Daily Mail to an Iraqi news channel. There’s no real sense of peril or quest here, no frantic deadlines or round-the-world adventures, just one man who has set himself a silly challenge. But it’s told in a warm, genuine way- here’s a performer who’s really interested in other people’s stories. It’s a relieving change from the usual tales of trolls and weirdos lurking on the internet; a nice exploration of the “social” in social media. Follow him on Twitter, then offer to buy him a pint.

Just The Tonic at The Mash House, until 24 Aug.
