I was just emailed the link to the Guardian live twitter on the G20 protests (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/apr/01/g20-london-summit-twitter).

I have not really paid much attention to twitter before but must say I'm finding the impression this one is giving of a vicious fight between the police and rioters (drinking chilled chablis and (shock horror!) not wearing ties) more than a little surreal.

I gather one journalist is in some bank restaurant overlooking the riot (hence the tieless chablis-drinking bankers who are, presumably, treating the injuries, brutality and mayhem as some kind of spectator sport). Billy Bragg is also involved, somehow, though I haven't quite worked that bit out.
