Montweets

I've started tweeting Montaigne quotes - follow them here.  I'll add one whenever one comes to mind, and, of course, whenever I can fit it into the 140-character limitation.  I'm aware that nothing could be less Montaignean than to think you can express something in a 140-character soundbite and be done with it.  A lot of those characters would be needed just for adding his typical codicils to any opinion - things like, "Or perhaps not", "but I don't know", and "I might be wrong".

I'll try to make up for this by selecting tweets that are as inconsequential, contradictory, and generally untidy as possible.

Hello DaveP,

No! I found that German one once too, and it isn't mine. The link in my blog should take you direct to mine - or use this:

~the link you sent is a search for #Montaigne which has results, but not in the form of our twitter pages?

Hi Dave -

That particular link isn't to my general Twitter page, but to anything tagged #Montaigne. So far that's mostly me, but I hope other people will add to it too.. (hint hint)

"...but to anything tagged #Montaigne."

Doh! As Homer would say.

Sorry to waste bandwidth Sarah.

*now* I understand :-)
