Ah, Twitter. You’re smarter than you look, aren’t you? We give you 140 characters, you give our followers a psychological profile worthy of the most intensive counselling session. Or something approaching it.

In the first of an occasional series, SevenStreets snoops on a selection of Liverpool twitter accounts. And, in just ten random tweets plucked from their feed, we think you’ll learn all you need to know.

We love the fact that Twitter outsmarts all those PR dollars, branding guidelines and the press releases when it comes to getting up to speed on the real story. Which is why, sometimes, you don’t need a one thousand word feature from us to get under the skin of the city’s people, places and events.

We kick off our series with the Hilton’s in-house club for movers and shakers – and sometime star of Desperate Scousewives, The Playground.

The exclamatorily excessive Playground account is over at @playgroundl1, should you feel the need to be bombarded with dubious claims (the first UK nightclub to get global press, anyone?), misguided comparisons to other clubs, slight celeb gossip and woo-hoo shout outs.

The club’s been attracting some serious coverage – and its Pornstar Mojito cocktails are on the lips of the city’s beautiful people most weekends (if we’re to believe everything we read in By Invitation Only. And we do). So, if you’ve had a spare £500 been burning a hole in your Cricket kecks, and you’ve remained undecided about joining the fun at Forbidden Circus, Retrosexual, or any other of the Playground themed nights (and if you were keen to own a membership card designed by Alex Curran) maybe these tweets will swing it one way or the other.

Bring it on!!!! Live ur life be free!!!
