Quote of the Day

Twitter is full of trolls, even more so this election period.

Even the Herald’s claimed media writer/commentator John Drinnan thinks it’s a place with no accountability. But when he loses followers, his tactic is to try and shame them.


Good luck doing that to Heather du Plessis-Allan.

Drinnan’s just been given a good serve.



I stopped following Drinnan some time ago when he started spewing hatred in a way that would even make David Fisher sit back and wonder if he had gone too far.

Drinnan has been like a man possessed, ringing around companies and questioning them about their involvement with Cam Slater.   One of those people lost their job because of it.

So John shouldn’t be so surprised when people stop following him on Twitter.  In the past, we could count on him to have some balance, the odd pointed observation but in general a sensible view of the world.  In short, he was a good citizen of Twitter.

That has now changed to a hate filled vendetta that’s turned everyone off.  So much so, even colleagues in the media can no longer stand to be exposed to it.

Drinnan might consider having a reality check and stepping away from Twitter for a while.  It worked wonders for this friend.
