Stephen Fry Reaches 63,000 Twitter Followers, Will Speak At Apple Store

Apple Fanatic and Twitter Favourite Stephen Fry will be meeting his fans and Apple enthusiasts on the 2nd of February (that's next Monday) at Apple Flagship Store in Regent Street at 7pm.

Fry will be discussing his latest audiobook, A Selection of Oscar Wilde's Short Stories, at the free for all event. Fry is also a well known narrator of audiobooks and has recorded the whole Harry Potter series as well as the works of Roald Dahl.

The audiobook is available on iTunes at the cost of £8.95 for a two hour run. Interestingly, the same audiobook is available for slightly less on Audible UK (part of Amazon) as an unabridged version, for only £7.99 if you join Audible.

Stephen Fry, who is the fifth most followed Twitterer worldwide (just behind Leo Laporte, above Twitter itself and by far, the biggest Twitterer outside the US), is a renowned technology lover and gadgeteer.

More than 63,000 people are following him with more than 10,000 people joining in soon after he appeared on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.

Quite surprising that Stephen Fry hasn't been given the title of Sir. There's already a Facebook group that campaign to get Stephen Fry Enoble. Which we reckon is a great idea. It is refreshing to find that there is a breed of intellectual, to whom Fry belongs, that understands the intricacies and the subtleties of technology.
