1. It was the parody account that captured the imagination (imagenation?) of Australian politics fans. @Rudd2000 posed a simple question; what if Kevin Rudd were still Prime Minister today?
2. 3,000 posts later and with the account more popular than ever, the final tweet came with Twitter favourite Anthony Albanese (Ablo) eating the main character.
3. The mystery as to who was behind @Rudd2000 was revealed when University of Canberra journalism lecturer Scott Bridges and University of Newcastle Philosophy PhD student Stephen Owen stepped from behind the curtain.
4. It turned out Scott and Stephen officially retired the much loved account over a frothy beer.
