#100factsaboutme

#100factsaboutme is (at 9:30pm UK time on 20th March 2011) a global trending topic on Twitter. This confuses me because Twitter is limited to 140 characters. But, I feel like I am missing out, so am going to embark upon an incredibly egotistical, self-indulgent, “me, me, me,” style post in order that I can play.
