@Fascistlefty @newmatilda Well, I compared them to a “self-obsessed schoolgirl”. Happy to put my hand up to that. Delicate possums.

via TweetDeck in reply to Fascistlefty

Hilarious. @newmatilda has blocked me on Twitter because they’re too stupid to realise they’ve mistaken me for someone else. Moronic

via TweetDeck

@newmatilda I suspect you’re mistaking me for someone else, because I haven’t even read your masthead for ages. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck

Right, you cunt. Clear evidence or an apology within 48 hours. twitter.com/newmatilda/sta…

via TweetDeck

@newmatilda Actually, if you’re going to publicly allude to being banned… what the actual fuck are you talking about?

via TweetDeck in reply to newmatilda

@newmatilda @somuchbullsh If you think it’s about “social media marketing” then you are are already lost. I know nothing about a ban.

@Gin_ev_ra @NewtonMark @matforbs Yes, if only people sitting at their computers had some way to find out the answer.

via TweetDeck in reply to Gin_ev_ra

Bit late now, I’d have thought. We’re already well down the narrative. twitter.com/ConversationUK…

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @matforbs Yes, it’s part of a general avoidance of specific language. It’s a commitment problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@MolksTVTalk Well that’s the elephant in the room, obviously.

via TweetDeck in reply to MolksTVTalk

@KrazyKarl910 Oh there’s so much I could say now, but I’m in enough trouble as it is.

via TweetDeck in reply to KrazyKarl910

@KrazyKarl910 Well, if you’re playing the long game, sure.

@carolduncan Sure, but more in the style of Brazil, than Nineteen Eighty-Four.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

Just to be clear, this is one tiny supposed fact, which by itself means nothing. twitter.com/BreakingNews/s…

via TweetDeck

Add this to today’s happy facts. twitter.com/wolfcat/status…

via TweetDeck

You’re humans with a forebraIn. Don’t let the endless TV images of one horrible event on our vast planet fool you into a daft over-reaction.

via TweetDeck

@carolduncan No, it’s bullshit. 120-odd people killed is a tiny blip in the number who died today. Risk change roughly zero.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

Reminder: Most people are safer than they’ve ever been in the entirety of history. Westerners, you will probably die from being too fat.

via TweetDeck

No. Bad question. Assumes were ever “safe” (from what? at what risk level). Knee-jerk reaction to one rare event. twitter.com/carolduncan/st…

@Biggy1883 Oh FFS stop tweeting those graphics at me. They’re dreadful. You should be embarrassed.

franksting Good use of Purported. Everyone else is automatically assuming it’s real. twitter.com/stuartdhughes/…

Yes, @franksting. Cities’ PR folks are competing to get their city’s picture in the end-of-news montage. Vital work. twitter.com/franksting/sta…

@somuchbullsh @newmatilda I don’t care who the fuck you are. Retweeting all your praise is just off. Twitter as endless self-promotion? Bah.

via TweetDeck in reply to somuchbullsh

@BrigadierSlog Indeed. Dawkins is just some narrow-mindeed cartoon-character bigot now, the kind who used to write manifestos in green biro.

via TweetDeck in reply to BrigadierSlog

@semibogan It’s Melbourne. It’s probably cabaret or something.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

Oh, is Richard Dawkins being a cunt? Must be a day with a Y in it.

via TweetDeck

Oh look, @newmatilda is retweeting all the praise it’s had, like a self-obsessed schoolgirl. “Look at me! They love me!” How undignified.

via TweetDeck

@beforeyoucanfly Kill yourself now, for the sake of our species.

via TweetDeck in reply to beforeyoucanfly

@beforeyoucanfly Well thanks, yes. I think it’s the core idea of press-button emotional responses that’s the problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to beforeyoucanfly

It continually astounds me how so many people are paid so much money to be professional communicators, yet they can’t write for shit.

via TweetDeck

Oh I’m happy for a word like “impact” to be used metaphorically. It’s not wrong, @matforbs, just so fucking dull and unimaginative.

via TweetDeck in reply to matforbs

This would have been 900% better without “impacted”. Sympathy as dull, low-grade managerialism. twitter.com/cityofmelbourn…

@awelder @Colvinius With the rise of 3D printing, coupla weeks, bro.

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@awelder @Colvinius Surely you’re nut suggesting anyone would go for “simple” rather than “true”? Heaven forfend!

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@zippuli Well that’s also a question, but a different issue. I’m not thinking about immediate tactics, but about political communication.

via TweetDeck in reply to zippuli

@Colvinius I kinda love the idea of, say, Tony Abbott as the long-term ISIS mole, but that’s too loopy even for me.

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius So the question to ask, then, is why our political leaders don’t ever discuss it in these terms, and in fact fall for the tactic.

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

@wine_o_phile Well, exactly. And when I was at the ABC last century some time, we got abuse from across the spectrum. So all good.

via TweetDeck in reply to wine_o_phile

Mind you, this still happens to me most days. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck

Surely being called a cunt is part and parcel of a political journalist’s daily life? Certainly was for me when I was producing talk radio.
