Tweets of the Week - Out with the old, in with the new // Winter seems shorter, even if curled up in front of the fire

Published by Christine

We've been esconced in this brand new year of 2011 for a good couple of weeks now, and as the F1 world begins to wake from it's winter slumber, it's time to bring back our weekly review of all things Twitter. New faces have popped up on the microblogging tool since we last met, and there has been plenty to mull over during the last seven days. Here is my pick of the tweets of this past week.

1. Now this is planning ahead. Although the answer is 'no, it's not here already, stop it.'

Started sorting out flights for the first few flyaway races today. Is it here already??? The winter breaks are getting shorter every year.

2. I wish I had spotted this before, because I would have answered "competition time."

I have a time in my head. Whoever RTs this message including #xlVRmarketing #F1 closest to that time wins an XL http://twitpic.com/3oks5t

3. The new girl at 5live seems absolutely lovely, but you really shouldn't be watching trilogies in the wrong order. Nu-uh.

Curled up like a cat on sofa eating Thai takeaway,about 2 watch 'Girl who Played with Fire'-for some reason did the trilogy in wrong order

4. Not the most thrilling tweet, but a) I love the username and b) you can never have too many safety courses. Not when it comes to KERS, anyway.

Still not much happening. Just a kers safety course today. Apparently a full power from the battery will kill you instantly.

5. Sophie is taking over some of the tweeting duties for the official Williams account, but her own tweets make me think it's time to visit Williams again.

Very excited about the new coffee bar opening at work today... Its no starbucks but its good &cheap!!

6. Hard to say if this was Sophie or not, but Williams are starting a season-long project to capture their history under one hashtag.

7. Autosport International drew to a close yesterday, and I want no assumptions that Mr Codling wasn't taking his job seriously.

Managed to complete the challenge of squeezing three Spandau Ballet song titles into my MB interview. Any other suggestions?

8. Tweets of the Week just wouldn't be the same without a countdown from the excitable Tabatha. Ms Valls has just started at Virgin Racing today, so expect plenty more from her during the season.

55 DAYS, 20 HOURS AND 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE BAHRAIN #F1 GP & only 16 days left before the Valencia tests!! Woo hoo!!

9. Jenson has spent the winter training hard in a variety of destinations across the globe. He's also changed his Twitter name.

Very windy but fun Duathlon here on Guernsey this morning.. Came home fifth after a very tough bike.. Guernsey has some good athletes!!!

10. Martin Brundle becomes F1's newest Twitter recruit, and gets to grips with talking to a global audience.

New to this twitter business. Forgot you could be in different parts of the world. Really looking forward to sharing F1 2011 with you. MB
