My Christmas poem for 2010: A Social Media Christmas.
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Every creature was on Facebook, clicking their mouse;
The lights on the tree gave such a nice glitter
I took a pic with my iPhone and shared it on Flickr.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds
With music from their iPods filling their heads;
And mamma with her Kindle and I using an app
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap;
When out on the Web there arose such a clatter
I turned on my iPad to see what was the matter;
I opened a new window but the website used Flash
Causing the browser to have a quick crash;
And just when my nerves were starting to jitter,
I looked to see what was happening on Twitter
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear?
A Fail Whale – oh dear!
