Stylewatch: Twitter telly pundits

Miriam O'Callaghan - it was all about the choker

Lately, we have found that there is little need to watch television anymore. Why bother with actually watching the Late Late, when a quick scroll through #LateLate provides an ample overview of what Tubs is up to?

The phenomenon of the Twitter telly pundit is a bit like sitting in a room with dozens of people, all voicing their every thought as it occurs to them. This would be better sport if we all were Stephen Fry, but sadly the best people can come up with is "#LateLate an all time low".

Irritatingly, the white noise from Twitter often overtakes the content. A few weeks ago, Miriam wore a 90s choker on Prime Time, and, within minutes, Twitter was all over it. Never mind what Michael McGrath was saying about interest rates. It was all about the choker.
