The world of social media is a strange beast here in Thailand, it can be filled with mountain’s of information,some of which is useless some which can be very helpful.
The expat community lap it up, and give their own opinions at every opportunity.
So here is a tongue in cheek look at some of Thailand’s social media characters and their “Tweets of the week”.
Our good friend Phil from Birmingham keeps busy by looking for empty shopping malls or letting us know what is good on “Expat Tv “.
The JAS Mall has claimed another victim and this time it’s a big one. Domino’s Pizza hung on bravely for months with the same family of four huddled in a corner but its closure has cast a huge shadow over the ground floor. pic.twitter.com/ODS4B8M9jI

Richard Barrow is up next, the man of the people who works long hours all for free to keep us updated,always seems to stay at the best places and boards first on to planes.But putting my love/hate relationship aside with Mr Barrow he posts some good stuff and keeps a lot of tourists up to date with relevant information.
Boarding AirAsia FD3029 from Bangkok to Phuket. Luckily, flight time is only an hour or so as legroom is zero even when I take out the magazines from the seat pocket. Light rain here in Bangkok and 80% chance of thunderstorms in Phang Nga this afternoon #Thailand pic.twitter.com/SL8to0Cite

Good old Glenn,spends his time in 7/11 wishing he had made an album of things he’s seen in said 7/11
Should really have started an album ‘things I’ve seen in a 7/11’ pic.twitter.com/nTvlUhuHhp

SomChaithedog, the only man I know who should be sponsored by Leo as he drinks that much and posts so many photos of it, some great tweets and a total wacky outlook of life over here.
