Not gone watch it but iirc he spends a chunk of this 2008 doc  going on about how much he loved being able to block people on Twitter https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bXsIXZgmOL4

It’s pretty hard to overstate just how extremely addicted he was to Twitter. He had created a little fiefdom where he got to control the discourse and have constant engagement for years and years, not being famous enough to attract any major attacks for his then mostly liberal views and able to instantly mute the occasional ones he did get amongst a sea of sycophants

I had no idea that documentary existed, and look at the star studded line up of comedians there all speaking highly of comedy writer Graham Linehan in 2008. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I remember people referring to him as 'Graham Linehan, Internet policeman' over the way he would stomp about the place telling people what to do.

I remember talking about Stewart Lee' saying that twitter was like a load of rats fighting over some piss and Glinner turned up in my mentions angrily demanding receipts.

"We should talk about something other than Twitter" around 15 minutes in. Then Glinner talking about how he hates Facebook.
It's weird seeing him be positive and dare I say it, charming in places.  All I've ever seen of him recently is him being absolutely abhorrent so it's weird to see him happy and not sneering at something.  The 'robbing crisps from the newsagent' thing was amusing, I guess I've just forgotten that he was a comedy writer.

The obsession with Twitter and how it's a new paradigm is pretty obvious.  Around 10mins or so he's talking about illegally downloading things and DRM, so if I had to make a massive guess, I reckon the Limmy dinner party was probably around this time as well.

EDIT: Fuck me, he spends the entire time talking about Twitter

Rats in a ditch.

Glinner seriously demanded that you post the relevant clip of a comedy routine? Why, because he cares that much about what Stewart Lee of course he cared. Sad little man.

I remember getting a retweet from Linehan (something I wrote to someone else, I never followed him, nor he I) and feeling like it was a big deal.

I suppose it would be if it happened now but for vastly different reasons.

What was pathetic at the end was how few interactions any of his tweets were getting. Every one, like the "Ralph" one he prayed would go viral, but they got a few paltry likes. Then he started to go all cargo cult worshipping the hallowed J.K.Rowling tweet like the nuclear bomb in Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Giving it a ritual relike to offset the evil of the trans-identified Silicon Valley incels.

I assume Bobby just got bored with Twitter and didn't do that.

Robert Llewellyn it still just as engaged with Twitter as he ever was, as far as I can see.

The difference between Glinner and Bobby is that Bobby is a lovely guy. Look forward to meeting him in September.

Sadly it's clear from watching that Carpool that even before his transphobia was unleashed, Linehan is an opinionated bore.

For all his talk of how Twitter could change the world, it seems his belief in its influence is painfully naïve and arrogant. Just droning on and on about "how the world really is" and sneerily dismissing anyone who has a different opinion.

reminds me of when he was on Robert Llewelyn's Car Pool and I'm probably remembering it through shit tinted specs but I feel like he spent most of it banging on about twitter.

Didn't he spend an entire RHLSTP a few years ago banging on about Twitter? Or was that Al Murray? Or both?

Yeah, he banged on about how people who didn't use twitter were so incomprehensible to him. He was saying things like "Really? So you have no interest at all in this thing that connects everybody in the world together". As if twitter is like the Internet's town centre.

It's weird how since he got permabanned I've started thinking that being on Twitter is extremely important and anyone not on it is a total fookin' loser.

Glinner is still on it to be fair. All day. Every day.

Raging about Elliot Page on his substack again, venomous “think of the children” stuff. Prick.

I saw that Elliot Page had done an interview yesterday. Should have known Glinner would hit the roof.

Remember that he now thinks of what he does as journalism.

Extra, extra, Scoops Linehan reveals to world "I'm still a cunt."

Funny how the clueless one-man-Westboro keeps referencing Gilead and Under His Eye and the like, as he does yet again in that piece about Elliot Page. He really needs to properly bone up on his Margaret Atwood

"Tell me what you mean. I don't sign blank cheques. Do you mean that I'm a 1972 feminist who felt that women were betraying their gender to have sex with men? I'm not that kind of feminist. And I'm not the kind that thinks that trans women are not women. So you tell me what you mean and I'll tell you if I am one."

Just having a Wednesday-procrastination watch of that now. "People who use twitter are evolving faster than other people" - he's like Jeff Goldblum in the Fly int he, fresh out of the teleporter

Seth Rogen's twitter is also a good example. Pictures of his ceramics and weed, the occasional dig at Ted Cruz and just an all round laugh.

Dave Davies from The Kinks is one of my favs on Twitter. He's just so utterly wholesome, replies to anyone very charmingly, corrects any tabloid stories about himself/his brother/The Kinks. He just seems lovely.
