VIDEO OF THE DAY – Digital Nation

If you’re a Trekkie and a Tweeter (Twitterer? Twit? I never know what to call them…) you’re going to find yourself a bit torn after this.

Patrick Stewart (one of the UK’s finest exports) can’t see the point of Twitter. “To reduce life to 140 characters seems a little too simplistic”, he says. This is just one revelation in this short interview – filmed as part of PBS’s Frontline: Digital Nation, to be shown tomorrow night.

If you can access PBS, the documentary, nearly a year in the making, will be well worth watching. We’ll be downloading it as soon as we can, that's for sure.

In the meantime, we’ll make do with these YouTube insights.
