What happened? I woke up one Sunday in Aug 09 and tweeted a wake up line from a Queen song. Someone out there tweeted back the next line and then a snowball grew. The brain started ticking over with the morning coffee and… well… what if a few people from the Twitterverse all sang and squealed together. All just for fun, smiles and harmony?
From very humble beginnings on the first one they have each been an absolute joy to make. The nerves of the people taking part for the first time, the connections made when strangers sing together, the surprises from secret talent plus of course the super people who like me, have no melodic talent but willing to blast something out for a laugh.
So far there have been 19 Twitter Singups, shown below (have a look see if you recognise anybody). There are more underway, maybe you want to join the fun?
