#savetheteapot - a #FF perfect for #elevensestime

What the #*!#?
 ... is what you may be thinking!

But if you are a regular user of Twitter (or addict as we are sometimes known!) you may have some idea what I am talking about! I have been on Twitter as madebylolly for quite a while now and absolutely love it! I have met so many new friends through this social network and have also learnt a lot - as it is a super speedy way to share information!

Although each tweet is limited to 140 characters, you can use that space to post pictures or links to other more in depth stories. When people want to share a particular topic a 'hashtag' (the symbol # followed by a word) is used to 'tag' the tweet.

Hopefully this might be starting to explain the reason for the strange title to this week's Folksy Friday blog post...?! Well, either way, I shall explain!

#savetheteapot is a topic that has started trending on Twitter after a report was published that suggested most of us make our tea in mugs!

#FF or #FollowFriday is a way for tweeters to share a list of other people that they follow - a personal recommendation of people they think you might also like (it also has the same initials as Folksy Friday!)

#elevensestime is a way for people all over to share what they are doing at elevenses time!

So... today my Folksy Friday theme is Teapots - featuring some people I follow on Twitter and Folksy!
I hope you have time to enjoy this post while you sit down for your own cuppa at eleven - out of a teapot of course!
