RT @GreenJ Having just turned 50, govt wants me to test myself for bowel cancer. Why can’t Anthony Albanese come round and do it personally?

@babyexpat I’ll have to read the reports. But there’s a naivety about many of the tweets. Plus most don’t understand political timescales.

@fridley Gawd. If you have to explain the difference between copper and fibre, the rest of the issues will be… baffling!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fridley

Laughing at tweets saying “violence in Bangkok is over”, as if a chronic political schism is now neatly wrapped up like an episode of “24”.

@newcbrn Virgin’s iPhone site has said “watch this space” for 6 months, you say? Sounds like more work to be done there! ;)

The hacked Classification Board’s website must’ve been full of holes. It’s back up, but only as a one-page contact list! http://is.gd/p2cu

@Nickhodge Alas, I hadn’t gotten around to reading your piece yet. There’s Overload in the tubes. I need fibre to clear the blockage.

@Alex_Manchester Yes, Wotnews goes by precedence and volume, not audience size, so I’m also listed high on Conroy news. http://is.gd/5cCT

@jmacmullin Ah well of course it’s “politically loaded”. But then we ARE talking politics! :) It’s ALWAYS about perception.

@DDsD Is there “dirt” in my background? Isn’t there dirt in everyone’s background, or at least something which can be spun into dirt?

@jmacmullin Rudd announced the , and was clearly over-riding Conroy in the announcement, so it’s fair to link the plan to him, no?

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis rempli d’un millier de pensées, comme les pétales de rose enrobés de cocaïne. Et vous?

@DDsD On a Nokia N96, the weather and nav run off the RHS of screen. Zero actual content above the fold.

@Colgo Oh, be cruel! I think http://m.abc.net.au wastes too much of a small mobile screen on branding and BIG BUTTONS.

via Twitter Web Client

@pyrmontvillage Maybe there’s spin, or maybe they want to give their clients “real” numbers. I’ve asked @Pollytics. http://is.gd/sjAf
