    I thought it would be nice for those who use Instagram to share our account names so that we may follow one another.

    Mine is Thomas_not_tom_

    I mostly post photos from recent zoo trips, but also some of the typical uni student antics I get up to. Would be great to see some of you on there, there are so may great pages/accounts to follow :)

    Generally more landscapes, flowers, and pictures of my wife than I post on ZooChat.

    My Insta is just a general account rather than being zoo photography specific - though on my zoo visits, I tend to post a LOT of iPhone photographs. I’m going to check out all the ones listed here, thanks all!

    I have now got an Instagram for my travel blog but haven't posted anything. I think it is weekender_blog or something. :)

    I used to thing my grandparents were sad old gits because they couldn't operate a VCR but now l feel wonderfully liberated every time I stick two fingers up at modern technology. Needless to say I don't use instagram.

    ...but you're on a computer...

    Or do you give the message to a raven and then he has to go type it out on the computer?

    Don't be daft, I use a kiwi, and very nice she is too.
    I haven't completely given up on modernity, I still use a flushing toilet, but I feel less desire to keep up with stuff like instagram and snap chat. I cancelled my twitter account, it was wonderfully liberating.

    I have a litter box in the corner.

    I don't use any of those new-fangled things like Facebook or Twitter or whatever. If I see kids using them I shake my walking-stick at them.

    I just have Zoochat, and I use electronic letters (I believe they are called "emails"?), and I have a phone which I use to send messages consisting of text. Occasionally I use it to actually phone people, but only if have to.

    I still send postcards but they're getting harder to find and more expensive to send, and that's when you can find somewhere to buy stamps from. what I like about them is that three months after arriving home from a holiday I get a call from someone thanking me for the card which by then I've forgotten about.

    I try to avoid the electric telephone and I don't have a portable one to put in my pocket. I send postcards and still mourn the loss of the telegram service.
