Asking a little too much from Twitter

This, from Ban Ki-Moon of the UN:

Hello, everyone!
...
As you know, I just rang the Peace Bell.  I think you saw a broadcast of my remarks.  These can be summarized in three words:  We Must Disarm.  I shared some of the messages that we received on Twitter from people just like you –- maybe even some people right in this room.

I also tweeted some of my own reasons why We Must Disarm:

·         because the world is overarmed and peace is underfunded;

·         because disarmament contributes to development; and

·         because nukes threaten humankind.  Let’s get rid of them 4 good.

I sent these messages on Twitter because I want to involve the whole world in the campaign to eliminate weapons of mass destruction.  Not just political leaders but citizens everywhere -– including students like you.  You are the future leaders and owners of this planet Earth.


Erm, can't see that he'll achieve that, somehow.

Meanwhile, as if the poor man hasn't suffered enough he has just met David Miliband, and earlier on he was hobnobbing with the odious Blair.  His Twitter feed is here, but what really intrigues is the one person Mr Moon follows, a British twitterer called Matthew Somerville who appears to be a civilian.
