@Nash_Bandicoot Ha — good eye! Glad you like the videos :) @proogs @allthestations Also if Geoff was on the 1020 from Euston today, then so was I… @proogs We all had a great time, thank you :) @cubicgarden Good eye! On the train headed south now though :) @sir_soul No, this was just the live experience! @hassall26 It’s brilliant! This was the Manchester one — given the choice, I’d pick that over London!Today, the Technical Difficulties team went TO THE CRYSTAL DOME! (No, we couldn’t film it.) https://t.co/N52dQgILzv

@coldclimate @jonty Well volunteered @SignpostMarv @unnamedculprit Interesting - I wonder if those are based on your history or subscriptions? It seems an odd set of choices.It took @unnamedculprit and me a few minutes to work out how to spell the title of the new Park Bench. Soobtitlays: https://t.co/PwnIWAwzYh

@Evan_Hadfield Good luck with the series! Going on location is totally worth it :)THURSDAY https://t.co/pgCPmeBmdH @danielpeake Lovely! (Not inexplicable though — what other six-letter word goes with “journalism”?!)

Nine years at #TDC17 and they’re still a lovely crowd. Thanks, everyone! https://t.co/AmFPthVfhS @SLSingh @ThinkingDigital Yes! Hopefully we’ll bump into each other at some point :) @imranghory @raganwald @codinghorror Blimey, that’s ten years ago! @flashboy That’s for the “I NE-VEEER” refrain in the outro. (Which I always hear as “paella” anyway.) @imranghory Wait, that was you? That’s amazing! @flashboy It’s no “Sheffield Brightside” URL pun though @flashboy Fairly sure I just did the thing where I attempted to improve on someone else’s joke, failed, and made th… https://t.co/KV7sMKuClQ @flashboy “I’ve got soul but I’m going to Salford”

@xBytezz Thanks! :) @brotherbaldric Whatever that reference was, it wasn't deliberate! @mattround Ten hours to render, more or less. Motion blur takes a long time to calculate!New video! Why the YouTube algorithm will always be a mystery: https://t.co/IRbNDKsdyR @LukeMoll_ @Thelaserbearguy It seemed like a good idea to reuse graphics where possible!It also contains a really obscure Elton John reference that took me ages to get right and which almost no-one will get. Video's up at 4pm.This afternoon's video is a fancy-graphics one. It includes this wonderful cartoon of me by @Thelaserbearguy and I… https://t.co/IP5oGu0XKI

And that’s it, folks. First place to Portugal’s gentle ballad. And a night in a Kiev jail cell to an Australian and his arse. G’night all!(The previous record was the 1.4 million who watched “Tony Abbott’s Live Charity Arse-travaganza” on the ABC in 2014.)That may be a world record for “most viewers simultaneously seeing an Australian’s arse live on television” #eurovisionNOT NOW NORTH KOREA IT’S EUROVISION https://t.co/Per4X83TEDLet me tell you, getting hair caught in chainmail can be really painful. She’s taking a risk there. #eurovision @willhowells @garethgwynn A+ reference, well doneGermany’s got a bloody great song, but I’m fairly sure whoever wrote Sia’s “Titanium” has already called their lawyer #eurovisionI don’t know how Romania’s yodelling made it through the semi-finals, but the entire continent of Europe thanks them for it. #eurovision @travelinglens This is a really mild year. Remind me to send you some highlights from past years at some point…!Eurovision songs are limited to three minutes. That’s an objective three minutes; subjectively they may seem much longer. #espI’ll say this for #Eurovision, at least you know they’re not using auto-tune. Very, very definitely not using auto-tune.Trouble with Azerbaijan is if you piss off the wrong person, you wake up to find a horse in your stepladder
Retweeted by Tom Scott @mpitt79 That’s a better punchline than mine and I wish I’d thought of itFact: if you replay the #Eurovision Italy performance and watch carefully, you’ll see there was a man in a gorilla suit on stage all along.This was @TRJeffries and my ratings for this year’s songs. Hungary is the one at the bottom left with “NO” pointed… https://t.co/Tk4QulWTFkIt’s the same sax guy! Last time they came 22nd, so they thought they’d try it again. Maybe they’ll make 21st this… https://t.co/DVrexLavEJIf you’re wondering when the good songs start at #Eurovision, I’d guess probably about 2018. #notagoodyearFairly sure this is Ed Sheeran in the wrong aspect ratio #eurovision #aut @mattround And it’s ten times as much to renew, so it’ll inevitably expire @mattround It's £3 right now to get https://t.co/XMJ0MWJyx8 to point to https://t.co/pdLVzUKePO for a year and I am SORELY TEMPTED

@sallylepage You and @astVintageSpace should definitely meet up! @TRJeffries Only if it's a Joan Jett cover, and even then only if I don't listen to it and just provide sarcasm(I know "ill-thought-out, exhausted, rants about tech by a British dude" is a really goddamn popular YouTube genre but I'm not going there) @OiItsBen But thank you for asking :)The number 1 takeaway from the #NHScyberattack, though: when Windows says "please restart to complete updates", RESTART TO COMPLETE UPDATES.Not planning to, because: ❥ It's dull to explain ❥ The 'how' is mostly speculation ❥ I've got a computery video on… https://t.co/cQScGw7JKJFor anyone interested in the #NHScyberattack today, go look at @MDisraeli’s timeline: there’s some really good disc… https://t.co/uW9zLKTEqn
