MPs grumble over unfair tweetment

MPs grumble over unfair tweetmentParliament may be prone to the odd twerp and twittering, but Labour MP David Cunliffe says he’s never tweeted and nobody has tweeted him. [Stuff Politics]

Labour MP’s and the Ginga Whinga in particular are acting all hurt because some wag has set up some fake Twitter accounts and mocked them. As is typical of socialists they can’t take a joke and are now on a witch hunt to find out who mocked them in such a hilarious way.

Labour chief whip Darren Hughes said the fake profiles were concerning as Twitter was a legitimate tool for members of Parliament to communicate.

“We’ve contacted Twitter HQ to ask them to shut them down and to try and ascertain who is behind them.”

If this incident can teach them anything it is that politicians need to learn how to protect their brand with social media and that they don’t have any control over humour. Labour, instead of invoking high dudgeon should have laughed it off as a sily prank but they have decided to take the deeply offended route meaning the wag behind all this is probably sniggering into his cornflakes this morning at all the coverage he has caused.
