The New York Times has very kindly patted all us silly mummies on the head and generously offered to explain ​how Bitcoin works to your mom.  Then we got a twinkly eyed condescending smile as we were ushered into ​Mom this is how Twitter works.​ Even more irritating than the title of that particular website is the complicated and poor description of Twitter’s functionality coupled with the doe eyed pictures of children and animals that all mummies are assumed to favour.
