My Latest Twitter Updates

  • Thank goodness, it was all a sexist lie. Gillard is magnificent, the polls show her winning and Labor MPs are brimming with confidence. #
  • Very likely… RT @abolaffi: i think you are delusional #
  • Today's Essential poll: LNP 54, ALP 46 – no change. Prim: LNP 47 (0), ALP 33 (-1), Greens 11 (+1), Others 9 (+1) http://t.co/kthOjTHo #
  • The Queen may be 60 years on the job today, but John Steed (aka Patrick Macnee) is 90 years young: http://t.co/lBREnuNu #
  • Don't ask me how I know that but Wikipedia does not lie: http://t.co/XGlGklSb #
  • @MsCastan Yes, I found that tit-bit of information a bit hard to reconcile… #
  • Zugswang: Mungo MacCallum has taught me a new word. http://t.co/CmcFKXlm #
  • Okay, I've left the The Aerie confessional. The next client can enter and unload now. #
  • The Foreign Minister has apparently returned: http://t.co/yNLoHptE #
  • Tony Windsor: "I don't think there's any prospect of a leadership change in the Labor Party." #abc730 #
  • @mikestuchbery I know you're too sensible to take lists like that seriously, but you outrate most on it anyway: http://t.co/HRv68i1u #
  • @mikestuchbery Think of it as NAPALN for the media. That'll keep it in perspective. #
  • @mikestuchbery Even NAPLAN… #
  • @CathieTranent @mikestuchbery Maybe not napalm, but possibly a case of destroying the village in order to save it. #TorturedVietnamAnalogy #
  • @nancycato1 Of course you should blog. Your website should be your online hub, not Twitter. A website of any kind is internet real estate… #
  • @nancycato1 Sites like Twitter and Facebook are what they call "outposts" which you can use to drive traffic to your blog. #
  • @nancycato1 They're mutually reinforcing. You don't wait for some arbitrary number of followers – you start producing blog posts. #
  • @nancycato1 A blog *is* a website! The distinction is a nonsense. You can have a website/blog up and running in minutes. #
  • @nancycato1 And you don't need to earn it… #
  • @nancycato1 Sounds like procrastination to me… #
  • Australia Day and #MediaWatch .. #
  • The best Prime Minister since Menzies? They do mean his first incarnation? #QandA #
  • Is it safe now? #
  • 1/2 Seriously, Hildebrand has a platform on News Limited publications and Sky TV shows… Sloan was interviewing on Sky's Agenda yesterday.. #
  • 2/2.. and writes numerous newspaper columns. Lyons appears quite frequently on The Drum. Don't we have anyone else? #
  • I feel like I get up in the morning, listen to people on radio, read them in the newspapers and then see them on TV at night… #
  • And then you sit down to have a look at Twitter and they're bloody here as well… #
  • And yet there are many interesting people in business, NGOs, academia, unions, etc, who never appear but who could provide real value. #
  • I watched the first 10 minutes of #QandA tonight and then lost interest -and I'm somewhat interested in stuff like this… #
  • And that's not a smart-aleck, faux world-weary attitude… it was just supremely uninteresting. #
  • @Polliwatch I've got nothing against Jones – he's about the best there is. I consume lots of current affairs -just trying to be constructive #
  • @timsout Steady on, you're a tad ubiquitous yourself! #
  • @Wendycarlisle Not me, I sleep like a baby! #
  • @prestontowers I switched to Phillip Adams. #
  • @prestontowers Music to QandA by? #
  • @JohDidIt Hehe… that's why I mainly use lists and make liberal use of the TweetDeck filter. #
  • "Pesky thing, the subconscious." http://t.co/qROSqH6L – Tony Wright skewers Bob Brown. #
  • @esseeeayeenn Why are you always so angry? Why get upset about me tweeting a link to a newspaper article? #
  • @esseeeayeenn And it upsets you that I did *that*?? #
  • @esseeeayeenn Surely you're not serious? Tony Wright says Brown is engaging in pop psychology. Is he not allowed to do that? #
  • @esseeeayeenn I can't, don't and wouldn't speak for Berg. Again, why do you let this bother you? #
  • @esseeeayeenn This is over-reaction. Wright is simply saying that Brown is drawing a long bow about Gillard's critics being sexist. #
  • @esseeeayeenn Again, I don't speak for Wright but I doubt he's pretending to be a psychologist or psychiatrist.His observation is political. #
  • @esseeeayeenn That sounds well and good but one person's "informed" is another's "ignorant". #
  • Did he or didn't he? http://t.co/Y8r2m16N – Phillip Coorey on Kevin Rudd, David Gray and the numbers in South Australia. #
  • @esseeeayeenn Fair enough – I just think Wright is correct in judging that Brown's sexism charge is a ploy to protect JG & his own interests #
  • @JuliusFlywheel Be fair! It is a list of journalists and media types so there's no reason for me to be on it. #
  • @JuliusFlywheel But I do laugh at these so-called lists. If you tweet each day your rank goes up – it's nothing to do with "influence". #
  • @JuliusFlywheel If you're following the pasting I'm getting here at the moment, curation is not at all well-regarded! #
  • @swearyanthony I don't think you should worry about oxygen. This is Twitter and I'm a total nobody! #
  • @VincoFive @esseeeayeenn This argument could go round in circles indefinitely. My basic standpoint is that Wright has good political nous. #
  • @esseeeayeenn No offence, but can't you see that this dogged pursuit of a debating point is just a little bit silly? #
  • @esseeeayeenn And that's particularly silly. Wright is a whimsical, witty and elegant writer. I think you misunderstand his style. #
  • @esseeeayeenn Not at all. But I do think that Gillard is more the author of her own problems than a victim of sexism. #
  • @esseeeayeenn You don't discern the tone of voice in the context of that sentence? #
  • @esseeeayeenn I just re-read it. It doesn't strike me as homophobic. #
  • @esseeeayeenn You'll have to catch me on a night when I'm in the mood. Most of the time I do a Berg. #
  • @esseeeayeenn It's his joking way of saying Brown sees things others don't, or that he can resist sexist behaviour that others can't. #
  • Peter Hartcher: Have the Americans ever taken the Afghanistan war seriously? http://t.co/bNfKhIWj #
  • It just gets better… Peter Slipper intends to wear "a plush Speaker's gown" and has mused about the wig. http://t.co/tf1h7HvH #
  • David Penberthy: It's time for Rudd to muscle up or go away. http://t.co/tFRrs2h0 – "Power is not given away. It must be taken." #
