Last night, as a present to my fiancé Vicky who turns 30 today, I took her to see Ellie Goulding in a venue called The Olympia in Dublin (for those of you who don’t know who Ellie Goudling is, look her up on YouTube – she’s got some great songs). As we sat there waiting for her come on I asked Vicky, "Would you like to know what Ellie has been up to today?" "Yes," she replied, so I handed her my iPhone which was showing Ellie’s Twitter feed (@elliegoulding) and her latest tweets.
After a few minutes Vicky gave me back to the phone and went to the bathroom. So while I waited for her to return I, too, looked at Ms. Goulding’s tweets. After learning that she’d spent some time dancing around her hotel room to Prince (that particularly impressed me as I’m a massive Prince fan) and that she'd gone shopping in River Island, I noticed she tweeted somebody called @rebeccabecky.

Without Twitter, Rebecca would never have got to see her idol live on stage and, to quote her, have the ‘happiest day of her life’.
