The Geneva Motor Show in 140 characters or less

  1. Once upon a time, so we hear, journalists covering huge
    motor shows spent their days scribbling thoughtfully in pads before retiring to
    five-star suites to scribble a careful 2500 word analysis of the catalytic
    converter in the new Vauxhall Vectra. 
    Which would then appear some time the following month.

    But technology doesn’t just mean better
    cars at the shows these days. The Geneva Motor Show is now also full of scruffy
    men and women pointing shiny new phones at the world’s most exciting new metal
    before firing off a snap 140 character assessment on Twitter.

    Still, we have to admit it’s a great
    way to show you everything – and this is what Top Gear’s finest have been up to at @BBC_TopGear
    during the show.

    So here you go: the entire Geneva
    Motor Show in 140 characters or less (apologies for some of the less than perfect photography)
