19:06 The Opposition needs to move no confidence on the day Parliament resumes, no later. If it fails they should cop it till 2013. #auspol #
16:50 For the benefit of those watching on TV I won't exhale for an hour. #nrlparwst #
16:18 @markMGgeyer the Anzac jerseys are tacky ripoffs. Wouldn't be so bad if Legacy etc got a %age of the replica sales #
14:40 I can just see tonight's "Tony Abbott says..." lead stories being written as we speak. #auspol #

19:35 WWF's UK CEO evaluates the #London2012 official Sustainability Partners. Some are less suitable than others - http://t.co/DadSTvgj #
18:16 Fascinating. RT @datastore: International land deals: who is investing and where | Claire Provost http://t.co/f2qiaoMM #
17:37 TAbbott claimed in today's #asktony session to be a GWS Giants supporter. Does he even know they played today? #aflgiantsdogs #
17:09 I see there's been another Newtown victory when I wasn't in attendance. #vbnswcup #
13:58 Hmm if TAbbott thinks supporting the GWS Giants will win him votes he needs to practice the team's name first. #
13:08 Hmm no one prior to the early 1970s RT @Bubs_11: If you haven't voted yet get onto it!! http://t.co/gjNvOEHf #
12:44 Nice cheap 11 minute stunt that. RT @TonyAbbottMHR: Flight called. Thanks for the responses, Cheers #asktony #
12:41 #asktony @TonyAbbottMHR Given the choice between a major international summit and an olympic team fundraiser, what would you choose? #
12:36 #asktony Why did you lie to the Australian public yesterday about the state of our diplomatic relations with Indonesia? #
12:35 #asktony When are you going to apologise for your deceitful and distasteful "red light on the hill" remark this morning? #
12:32 Is it time I got myself across this Hunger Game Of Thrones that everyone seems to be talking about? #
12:30 Hmm. #nrlcbyman RT @joegee8: Great win but better that we honoured our anzacs #saluté http://t.co/SFNcpGNf #
11:31 #auspol @TonyAbbottMHR said WHAT?? RT @latikambourke: Tony Abbott - Ben Chifley's party now defending Craig Thomson's red light on the hill. #
10:55 With a lot of wishful thinking, hope neither of them ever become Prime Minister. #
10:53 Still, compare Shorten's mindless loyalty to Tony "Whatever It Is, I'm Against It" Abbott. #auspol #
10:31 also conjures up images of Bill Shorten the Jack Russell on At Home With Julia #
10:27 Just watched the Bill Shorten/Sky News interview (albeit a Libs edited version). Reminds me of a Shorten appearance on #qanda last year. #
09:50 Oh Rupert. RT @rupertmurdoch: Dramatic, slimy events in Australian politics. Country desperately needs election to get fresh start. #

20:46 I've just posted to my #LinkedIn rugby league forum about those Manly jumpers - http://t.co/gXYVJtel #nrl #nrlcbyman #
20:09 Sorry @manlyseaeagles but your uniform tonight is a disgraceful exploitation of Anzac Day and everyone at the club should be ashamed. #nrl #
20:07 You too can wear your own Manly camouflage jersey for only $160. If a %age was going to, say, Legacy then I could forgive them. #nrlcbyman #
19:58 complete with RSL badge on the sleeve and Centrebet sponsor's logo on the back. Who approved this offensive rubbish? #nrlcbyman #nrl #
19:56 #nrlcbyman I just found out what the Manly jumpers tonight are about. I am utterly dumbstruck :( http://t.co/8UCy7hFS #
19:52 #nrlcbyman #groan RT @rdhinds: The demon Barba with fleet feet? Sorry. #
19:45 That sound you hear is Rex Mossop turning in his grave at the sight of Manly's jersey tonight. #nrlcbyman #
18:19 @bernietb It works well if you've 40 minutes to watch a half-hour program :) #
18:09 @bernietb true, but none of those are unmetered on my phone like the Optus Footy Piracy Engine #
17:58 I'll watch it on Optus TV Now.... oh. RT @AndrewBGreene: On #abcnews24 now Government Leader of the House @AlboMP joins Capital Hill #
17:36 So who is tonight's @Lateline guest-tweeter, will they know in advance, and will the German #Lateline tweets be more interesting? #
15:29 Grrr. Optus has been forced to suspend TV Now despite AFL and NRL being a minute proportion of the TV programming available. #
14:24 Are the laws of gravity finally catching up with JB Hi-fi? - http://t.co/mcSaZ8ps #
13:54 It being April 27, I wish everyone a happy World Tapir Day! @worldtapirday #
13:38 More reckless rhetoric from a hubris-driven Tony Abbott, this time directed at Indonesia - http://t.co/UYxEABVG #auspol #
09:26 Today's Twitter highlight is brought to you by @charltonbrooker live-tweeting a 1977 episode of Top of the Pops. #
09:04 Hmm so @lateline appointed a guest tweeter without checking with the tweeter? #scandal #shock #fail #
