takes Twitter by stormA French homeless man has become a social media sensation, chalking up nearly 20,000 followers on Twitter with his account of life on the mean streets of Paris. Christian Page was the head waiter in a ritzy restaurant in the posh Madeleine district of the French capital before becoming homeless after a divorce that tipped him into depression. The message was shared over 2,000 times, prompting the authorities to remove the grilles – a small victory for the homeless that made the front pages, boosting Page's Twitter following to over 19,500 and landing him with a list of interview requests.It might mean a sandwich for a homeless person at the other end of France," said Page, who is scathing of the work of charities, calling them "supermarkets of misery" which he says fail to do enough for the homeless.On a personal level, he is optimistic about getting off the street.
