dduffy: Uh Oh - Taika Waititi is following me now. I had better clean up my act. http://bit.ly/6gPdtU


That was just 5 min ago, but none of his recent followers seem to be Taika. Is it possible to be invisible on twitter? I don't think so...other than protecting your tweets.



emira wrote:weird, because it says "that page doesn’t exist"... I'll have a go and text Sam.



gezyka wrote:Yeah, I got the same which is why I was wondering if it was possible to make your profile not visible.

TaikaWaititi Brilliant!!! RT @eliterate: Just read a tweet saying Boy by @TaikaWaititi was a 'Gorgeous film made us want to live in Australia'. Gah. !!!

so... NZ is that bad? [image]


tanfastic wrote:Funny "Australia" remark, but ya can understand the part "was a gorgeous film" cause I'm assuming like in Eagle vs Shark, he would be using the same style of filming. They way he shot that made me wanna live in "Australia" too. That is part of the charm of EvS, so darned purty.

He read my tweet and replied [image] :


@emira30 How do I sound? Am I interesting? What am I saying? Didn't know I could be sitting on a beanbag in my office AND be on the radio!


Apparently, it wasn't live :P [image]
