Of course, I know what they were doing. I’m just saying I wouldn’t be happy if I was working on Newsround and saw that from an official BBC account.


1: if anyone deserves to take offence surely it's Blue Peter? It's not even on the chart! 2: maybe the people actually working on Newsround have a better sense of humour and will take it in jest as it's so clearly intended to be?. We've all grown up with it but I don't think very many people would rank Newsround their favourite show. It's the "eat your vegatables" of kids TV. I suspect Newsround staff are far more alarmed about how to explain to kids that our planet is on fire, our ecosystems are collapsing and we're almost certainly facing extinction. Enjoy your Thursday. Wink

So, you accuse me of taking it too seriously and then point out why Newsround should be taken seriously?


Jon’s right though, this has all gotten a bit OTT just for talking about a bad tweet. So I’ll just say I prefer corporate TV social media accounts to be neutral on their programmes and not have opinions about them.

Isn't the supposed target age of CBBC younger than the supposed minimum age to sign up for Twitter?


I think it's for like people who grew up watching CBBC.

I get that image since they post alot of stuff from the 80s , 90s and 00s

I grew up with CBBC, and most of the shows on there are after my time. I think only 50/50, SMart, the 1996 Dennis and Chucklevision, Newsround and Get Your Own Back are the only shows from "my" era.

No sign of Grange Hill, Byker Grove, Blue Peter, The Animals Of Farthing Wood, Aquilla, The Demon Headmaster, The Queen's Nose, Live & Kicking... I could go on. If that chart is aimed at people who grew up in the 80s and 90s then they've got it badly wrong.

It's definitely 2000s, not 80s!

The show, yeah. Not it's ranking on a daft meme chart.

The majority of those shows are from the 2000s, a decade which I was born in. It’s a bit of light hearted fun. A lot of the Children’s BBC and CBBC (not the channel) generation are taking it way too seriously. As seen on here and on Twitter.
