Ah, at last some reason to read the Ritalin haiku that is Twitter. On February 1st, Gordon Ramsay will begin tweeting. In a BBC radio interview, the celebrity chef said, “I've gone on a Twitter course. I'm just going through all the stages in terms of prep, properly understanding it. I'm doing it personally.” No word yet on what Ramsay's Twitter name will be. Guess that depends on the British Twitter censors. Hopefully Ramsay's tweets will be more like his verbal histrionics than his food, which can be, to quote a famous restaurant critic, rather “staid” and “ladylike.” Wonder how many expletives you can cram into 140 characters or less. Not your grandmother's haiku.
