Whoever said "traditional" "legacy" journalists aren't willing to join the dangerous world of social media obviously didn't tell the ABC's political veteran Barrie Cassidy.
More than eight years after Twitter began, the 68-year-old joined "the conversation" by breaking news of the departure of ABC News director Kate Torney.
The news made big waves. But he was not done. Herald Sun journalist Rob Harris noticed that the Insiders host had also gone on a follow spree.
Yep... Barrie only follows four accounts: a senior government minister, a Liberal pollster and Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.
To cap it off, responding to ABC colleague Annabel Crabb's sledge that he was probably drafting his tweets on cardboard... Barrie sent a shot of his process.
Good god... what a power start to his tweeting career.
