#newsnight Tweets:

#newsnight tweets float around and bump into the four Newsnight presenters: Jeremy Paxman, Kirsty Wark, Emily Maitlis and Gavin Esler.

You can drag tweets and bump them into the presenters, or drag the presenters and bump them into the tweets. You can show and tweet your own messages, and in doing so shower the Newsnight folks with your love or with your disgust. Periodically, some of the presenters will spit out the odd phrase which will whizz to the edge of your screen, and then fade away (you can stop the presenters doing that if you show a message that contains "paxo", "wark", "maitlis" or "esler").
