Simon Amstell gets into the swing of Twitter. Honest

Simon is definitely becoming more enthusiastic and in tune with the practices of Twitter. He is now on an average of three tweets per week – no thanks to Jessica Hynes, I'm afraid

I took the opportunity to enlist the wildly liked actor/writer Jessica Hynes, who happened to attend one of Simon's warm-up gigs recently. While she was incredibly enlightening, I think she may have misunderstood the point of this project slightly.

I can reveal that, despite his somewhat negative Twitter attitude in the videos so far, Simon is definitely becoming more enthusiastic and in tune with the practices of Twitter. He is now on an average of three per week.

There will be a more official and informative instalment next week, when we get to meet Simon's support act for the Numb tour, and dissect some key tweets.

Can Simon Amstell's support act help him with Twitter?

Supporting Simon Amstell on tour will be Norwegian comedian Daniel Simonsen. Like Simon, he is new to Twitter, so I decided to give him a bit of encouragement. He'll probably follow me back any day now … won't he?
