The 21st century: man hurt himself tweeting
When you think of the perils of using Twitter on your mobile in a quest to gain more followers, you're probably thinking more of eye strain, carpel tunnel syndrome, or Twitter flu. Not getting a black eye.
But 23-year-old James Coleman from Bristol would beg to differ.
Coleman was jogging and tweeting on his way to work when he ran into a large, low-hanging branch.
The shiner was bad enough that he could only see out of one eye for several days.
His ability to tweet using his Blackberry however, remained unaffected.
In fact, he tweeted the accident: "Running to work, very late. Smacked my face against a branch. Forgot how tall I am."
Isn't it almost poetically haiku in its spareness?
"Running late to work
Smacked my face against a branch
Forgot that I am tall"
