Today a remarkable thing appeared to happen: I was followed on Twitter by David Hasselhoff.

At first I was ~ well ~ gobsmacked, encouraged, delighted and amazed. It was as if a whole new horizon arose before me. Here was Captain Limey and there was David Hasselhoff, a denizen of celebritydom, in the same tweet. Pals. Tight. Sweet.

It dawned on me later that with 30,000+ people to follow, the Hoff has a big job to keep abreast of the adulatory replies. So, exactly how high on his agenda am I? I’m figuring not very.

Does this mean I am not glad he followed me? Hell no! For a brief, fleeting moment I trod the red carpet of Celebrity. Maybe one day we will exchange a meaningful couple of tweets. Maybe not. In fact, probably not.

I can’t help feeling, though,  that this, for many Tweeters,  is what we all want: for a while, just to feel special. Special enough that someone notices.

About captainlimey

Captain Limey is the alter ego of a mild mannered idiot. He can also be found on Twitter, either as @CaptainLimey or in his new guise as a purveyor of Gangland Mummy Porn in @50ShadesOfKray. Despite a magnificent costume, specially created for him by his mother, he has no super powers, unless you count the ability of his skin to eat through metal, given enough time. This has led to the buggeration of several watches of his acquaintance but has not thus far proved harmful to other lifeforms. The Captain hopes you will enjoy his blogged musings and forgive the occasional rant against the world at large, and idiot dictators in particular. They really get his gander up.
