Calm down

Maybe Radio 4 does need the firm hand of digital thought-leader James Purnell, now tweeting more and more about radio in general. The Twitter feed of Radio 4, with just 371k followers, is in the throes of a dangerous and apparently deliberate mission creep.

Links to actual programmes and past content aside, in the last 24 hours we've had Tweets about three online quizzes that seem to have been specially written by someone.

A third quiz seems to have been specially written for the Edinburgh Fringe.
Also from the fringe, a whole series of wittering podcasts, and a fatuous photo-feature from the Front Row team ("My advice for surviving the Edinburgh Fringe: Don't stop drinking beer")

We've had a misspelt link to a Radio 6 Music listicle feature...
And a call for pictures of cats listening to the radio.
