I’ve had many interesting and unexpected emails land in my inbox over the last seven years, including some from people and organisations I’d never have dreamed would get in touch, like Russell Howard or the Sydney Opera House.
But a few days ago I received an email that really took the biscuit. Out of the blue an investigative journalist from a well-respected US newspaper got in touch with the bold and seemingly ridiculous claim that President Donald Trump was using my tics as source material for his tweets!
At first this seemed inconceivable but then I checked his feed.
It seems as if 45th President of the United States has mistaken @TicBot for a credible news source.
