    At the moment ed Sheeran is getting the convict policy on Australian radio: flog it to death. So a bit of respite is nice. But awful it was bullying.

    Aye, he has been killing pop music here for a few years now. Its getting to the stage that everyone and their granny is copying his style of song writing and playing...I am close to crying!.

    It has become very apparent that, for the most part, the only people who still tweet are the bottom of the barrel, cranky, douchey types...

    Good for him...social media has gotten ridiculous. I've been off FB for about 3 years and don't miss it.

    It's a place where people gather online and exchange thoughts and events. Sorta like this forum, but without the moderation. :cool:

    I may not like his music but to be fair to the guy I believe he's the only person that's ever played a headline slot completely solo (no backing band) on the main pyramid stage at the Glastonbury Festival..still not my thing but hats off to the guy..

    I thought Ed Sheeran copied everyone else's songwriting. With each new song he plays a game of 'what genre can I massacre today?'

    I know of some decent types, still doing Twitter but it seems to take the average person down a few notches on the class scale. Go in to Twitter one person, and come out some day a lesser sort of person. Virtually no one comes out better than they went in.

    Anyway, I would listen to Ed, and he's a decent sort, but man, there's so much wonderful music out there. I can't quite fit him in.

    I think he opened for Jeff Beck at the Electric Factory in Philly. Seemed far too earnest. Possibly the contrast worked, he was well received.

    Facebook is for chicks
    Twitter is for young chicks and college girls looking for a story for their media company.

    It's an extension of high school and the concept of those who are "in" and those who are "out".

    Can be used for promoting your _______ (Fill in the blank) career but when it bites, it bites hard.

    His playing is magical. Watch as it keeps going while his hands stop.

    Good for Mr Sheeran. Twitter was a great idea initially but now seems full of faceless cowards hiding behind their internet anonymity while joining cruel and badly spelled witch hunts.
