"More and more people are talking about TV on social media while watching their favourite programmes.

Whether on a smartphone, tablet or laptop, using a second screen to tweet about TV is becoming a common occurrence - and it is called "chatterboxing"."

Seems to be a fine example of Bartle's Law of Naming and Claiming!

Rock and Roll my friend, good spot!
Nice to see Richard's QBlog is doing the rounds!!

Isn't this the same thing "naughty" people have been doing for ages on MUDii .... using MSN or other chat clients with in game players while they are in game ...
Sure there as a rule about that ...
"Must not be in real time communication with another player..."

Turrican will be along soon to confirm.

But how do the wizzes / Arches police that ... packet sniffers on MUDii connections?

Tough one.

Can't see there been much to police nowadays Vully. I'm not aware of any non-game in-game chat going on anyway.

Bash at 9pm!!
