Graham Linehan on Twitter

Graham Linehan is well-known for his comedy writing. He's the creator of The IT Crowd, co-creator (with Arthur Mathews) of Father Ted and Big Train, the co-creator of Black Books (with Dylan Moran), and he's written for theatre. His adaptation of The Ladykillers comes to The Gielgud Theatre next month. But Linehan's also an avid Twitterer; having embraced the service back in 2007, he's since posted tens of thousands of tweets. .net caught up with him to further explore his love of the internet and social networking, and to discover what he thought Twitter got wrong.

"I'm a comedy writer and I guess recently I've become someone who really believes in the internet," begins Linehan. "Not that I believe it exists — I'm pretty sure it exists — but I believe in its power to change the world for the better. I think we're often called 'cyber utopians', but I don't think it's a utopian ideal to think things could get a little bit better because of the internet. Even if it's just selling the stuff in your attic, that means things are better than they were 20 years ago!"
