MT @guardianstyle: The word hoard may be useful. [For example, “I hoard around all last weekend.”]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to guardianstyle

Hmmm… I need to convey that I got the subtle reference without giving the game away. I think this tweet achieves that.

Sorry, has the world only just discovered today that Bahrain is a fuckhole of grief? People HAVE bought the wristband, right?

So if folks in @TonyAbbottMHR’s office can email me (confidentially) links to their stuff to confirm they weren’t silenced, I’m convinced.

RT @andrew_hedge: it was a bit of a storm in a teacup. Abbott’s office supposedly said it, but it was denied. They tweet anonymously anyway.

What’s even more disturbing is that politician’s staff were presumably ALL so spineless they couldn’t say “Boss? Fuck right off with that.”

via Janetter for Mac

Wasn’t there some arsehat politician recently who said their staff couldn’t have their own identity on “social media”?

via Janetter for Mac

Hah! Spinless. Spineless. Not quite the same thing. Spinful is perhaps closer. /cc @MarkTobinSydney @Colvinius

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll go further. Someone who can’t even stand by what they said just hours ago seems spinless to me. /cc @MarkTobinSydney @Colvinius

RT @Colvinius: Sadly, the twitterfeed of @MarkTobinSydney is no more [Yeah, I believe that’s called “shredding the evidence”. Bad sign.]

Look, they may have invented dubstep, BUT I KNOW HOW TO USE AN ASSAULT RIFLE.
