    The Most Deliciously Embarrassing Tweet In Recent Australian Political History

    A heavy reminder to never tweet. Just don't do it.

    In light of Bronwyn Bishop resigning from the speakership in disgrace, it's important to dig through the archives for potentially damaging stray thoughts you might have posted to Twitter.

    Are you ready for the most delightful tweet from Tony Abbott in 2011?!


    The Speaker's resignation reflects a government that is in chaos. The Govt has lost its way, lost its majority and now lost its speaker.

    Abbott tweeted the two line statement when former speaker Harry Jenkins shocked everyone and resigned.

    Of course Bishop resigning over dodgy expenses won't matter to Abbott's majority. But it's pretty embarrassing and has been RT'd several thousand times today. A timely reminder to never tweet. Not ever. It's bad.
