Breaking: Rupert Murdock Joins Twitter, Expresses Support For Santorum

@rupertmurdoch
Good to see santorum surging in Iowa. Regardless of policies, all debates showed principles, consistency and humility like no other.

Ricky promised he'd let his Sugar Daddy off the hook!

15. Its a verified account

At least we know what to expect from the Faux OpEds now, but this is interesting given the WSJ is in the Romney camp.

Speaking of the which, didn't Huckabee win Iowa in 2008?

May just be some red meat being tossed out there for the Faux crowd.

6. Also praises George Clooney (for acting, not politics),

Ron Paul and Scottish Nationalist leader Alex Salmond. And moans about us Brits taking too many holidays.

I won't be following Murdoch on Twitter. I think I'll stick to following beer geeks instead. At least beer geeks won't hack your phone and attempt to run our country via the back door.

22. The holidays thing has been pushed by his empire for at least 20 years

I'm guessing not just in Britain either. He would love every country to be like American "right to work" states, with no statutory paid leave and as few rights for employees as possible.

one of the other candidates he can claim he has no influence there.

11. Like Murdoch would know anything about principles, consistency, or humility.



Also, could ol' Rupert have picked a more unflattering photo of himself for Twitter? Seriously, he looks like he's constipated. That's probably how he always looks, though.

14. Yes. We get it. The GOP establishment wants Romney to be the nominee.

So you 'appear' to align yourselves with whoever has even a slim chance of stopping that.

Sheesh!

20. And this is the cue for me to chime in again...

with my sickening discovery last year, that in 2005, Iain Duncan-Smith, the disgustingly sanctimonious former British Tory leader and now our Secretary for (cutting) Work and Pensions, had co-authored an article with Santorum on 'compassionate conservativism'!

Right-wing snakes of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but most of the things that help the ordinary people of your countries to survive!

30. Grauniad article on the subject

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2012/jan/01/rupert-murdoch-twitter-account

Users of the microblogging site have reacted with a mixture of incredulity and unabashed horror to a declaration by its executive chairman Jack Dorsey that Murdoch had set up a verified account and would be gracing the site with his unique observations. "With his own voice, in his own way, @RupertMurdoch is now on Twitter," wrote Dorsey.

Within hours, the media tycoon had amassed more than 14,000 followers and was giving them his views on everything from the US presidential election to his family holiday in the Caribbean.

A cursory glance at his output reveals that he considers Steve Jobs's biography to be "interesting but unfair", that thoughts are best kept private in St Barths ("like London!" ), and that George Clooney deserves an Oscar for his performance in The Descendants (whose distributor is News Corp-owned Fox Searchlight Pictures).

Murdoch's latest tweet, posted late on New Year's Eve and betraying a certain technological unease with punctuation, reads: "Huge NY eve do. Oligarchs and silicon valley biggies(like Jack) . May. Learn something".
