This one is for anyone who follows Aus Politics on twitter

A little bit of humour for anyone who tweets about Australian politics

Okay, maybe humour is not the correct word, maybe the word should be horror.

For months now, those who read Australian politics have seen a degeneration of tweets from interesting links and insider gossip, to a series of “Tony Abbott says” or “The Australian says Tony Abbott says”.

Now the circle is complete. The Australian is quoting Latika Bourke’s tweets, about what politicians say, as a source. Fairfax died yesterday, and it’s taking the rest of what is left of the media with it.
