My Latest Twitter Updates

  • Catching up on Meet The Press. On the ADF, did Bongiorno mean to say "stirring up a sniper's nest"? Viper's nest? Interchangeable? #
  • Two carbon tax stories last Monday: http://twitpic.com/4lsh7w http://twitpic.com/4lskmr and how they happened: http://auspol.info/ibhm2n #
  • #PaperGiants – superb. I'll even forgive the incorrect Whitlam policy speech chronology at the beginning… #
  • Father Michael Tate – a long way from the Senate. #Compass #
  • A nice line in #PaperGiants circa 1973: "Who's Paul Keating?" He was in his fourth year as an MP at that point. #
  • Syria: technology and the example of neighbours is assisting, but the roots of protest are slower to take hold: http://auspol.info/dWvAUF #
  • Interesting to note the decline in tweeting from people I've allocated to my "must read" TweetDeck group. Small handful dominates now. #
  • RT @GhostWhoVotes: #Nielsen Poll Primary Votes: ALP 31 (-2) L/NP 47 (+2) GRN 12 (0) #auspol #
  • RT @richardlfarmer: Lord Cleese of Fawlty Towers: Why John Cleese declined a peerage – Telegraph http://auspol.info/hHkRmC #
  • RT @GhostWhoVotes: Labor's primary vote of 31 is their worst #Nielsen result in 15 years. #auspol #
  • @WNBSprague That's my point – I think most people only stay a while. A burst of enthusiasm and then they're done. #
  • @WNBSprague I don't tweet the way I used to anymore. Most of what I did is now done by others as part of their job. #
  • @mikestuchbery Yes, I agree with that. More lurkers than ever, I suspect. And more groups of co-workers chatting to each other. #
  • @mikestuchbery Agreed again – it's all become a little less pleasant recently. #
  • @mikestuchbery I thought I always did…! People seem to object more now. #
  • @mikestuchbery And then there's these buggers like @prestontowers who are plugging their writing! At least you and I never do that… #
  • @WNBSprague I'm actually de-toxing, as I call it. Been re-assessing the media I consume and how I spend my time. How I tweet is part of it. #
  • @WNBSprague @mikestuchbery If you have an online presence it's easy to lose sight of what's important. Twitter is an outpost not the hub. #
  • @mikestuchbery Hmm… yes, I know. It's not really wise on here – everything is taken far too literally by too many. #
  • @mikestuchbery Where are you teaching these days? #
  • @prestontowers @mikestuchbery It's legal as long as you stitch them after you've extracted their organs. #
  • Phillip Coorey: "That cry in the wilderness is coming from Labor." http://auspol.info/gL7jZh #
  • Coorey also has a good summary of the state of play with Andrew Wilkie and pokies reform: http://auspol.info/dPBhMr #
  • A vicious war on a soft target: http://auspol.info/hRR8Cm – Chris Middendorp on the new welfare "reform" debate. #
  • @rod_benson Maybe but I'm not sure he's the crusader I'd go to the barricades with. #
  • Soul Sisters Removals: http://auspol.info/ekVFZo #
  • It's not negative campaigning, says Amanda Vanstone, it's keeping a check on the government. http://auspol.info/ea6f4W #
  • @lapuntadelfin There are some unusally worthy bits of reading today. Don't you want to stay ahead of the sleeping pack? #
  • @yossi_01 In October I might have said so – http://auspol.info/cGFIGW – but not now. 41-28 isn't the key figure today, 56-44 is. #
  • @yossi_01 If you were in the Liberal partyroom today, why would you dispose of a leader who has the govt on the ropes? #
  • The Big Picture (A Work In Progress) http://auspol.info/eif6dL #
