Problem with Twitter is stuff disappears pretty quick. So as the activity will up in the next 24-48 hours here's a nice place to add some tasty morsels.

More like a knob writer, he should know how hard ordinary people have worked all year for this opportunity, seems fame and fortune has gone to his head..............he has forgotten where he came from.

He has said on more than one occasion he doesn't do technology, it is either someone on his behalf or someone pretending to be him.

Eric's manager opened a twitter account for him just before he went in the jungle, both Eric and his manager post under the account. However the recent comments are most certainly Eric.

He probably says it and someone types it for him, I imagine he can't type due to his fingers being too swollen from alcoholic water retention!

its a verified account as it has the blue tick next to his name.

i think its him as he posts quite a few pictures of things he is doing at the time (celebrity chase, holidays in tenerife and the like)

The 'business' tweets (about his app and appearances) on Eric's account obviously done 'for him', but more than one person can have access to an account. I know Eric has access to it so the 'personal' ones are from him (as Wayne says Rebecca may well type em for him).
