My nephew Aaron (age 9¾) recently started experimenting with Twitter, as I discovered about a week ago when he started following me. He was not the youngest person on Twitter (that honour surely goes to @rockhardawesome son of @codinghorror son of @spolsky) but his experiment seems to have been fairly short lived. His parents decided to enforce Twitter’s terms and conditions (which require you to be thirteen or over to use the service) after a couple of spammers started following him, but his last three tweets seem to suggest that he won’t be missing it:

why do you talk about boring stuff people ?????? talk of soming not boring please

Hmmm, there are certain people on Twitter that I could name who really, really need to read that...
