Have had a little fun tonight following @StephenFry on Twitter. Following this tweet:
Ok. This is now mad. I am stuck in a lift on the 26th floor of Centre Point. Hell’s teeth. We could be here for hours. Arse, poo and widdle
— Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) February 3, 2009
he posted a picture of his predicament to Twitpic:
There then followed a deluge of tweets with the hashtag of #frylift, and even some cash-in merchandise:
Okay that was me. My favourite was from Father Ted co-creator Graham Lineham who called for help:
Help! I’m stuck halfway up the stairs!

and also provided a photo:
Happily both Stephen and Graham were rescued and are now safe. This should say something about Twitter, given the numbers of posts and views involved, but I think more than anything it says it is a load of wonderful silly nonsense at times.
