What does a bored kleptocrat billionaire who has already lived past his expiration date do to pass the time while he is on vacation in the Caribbean? If it’s Rupert Murdoch, he takes a webcam picture of his moldy white raisin mug, tacks it to his brand-new Twitter account and sets about mocking the working slobs of Great Britain for trying to act like rich folk and have their own vacations, TEE-HEE.
Whoops! His wicked seaside ramblings threw his wife into an illiterate twit-fit, and then he deleted the post, because that is not how you show Great Britain you are CONTRITE about illegally spying on their citizenry, for money.
From the Sydney Morning Herald:
His wife, Wendi Deng, also appears to have joined the increasingly ubiquitous microblogging site, quickly replied: “RUPERT!! delete tweet!!”
Within minutes the Wendi Deng account, which has not yet been verified and may not be genuine, continued: “EVERY1 @rupertmurdoch was only having a joke pROMSIE!!!”
Minutes later: “explaining to @rupertmurdoch about being careful with humor on line. sometimes it comes out as rude!”
About five hours later Mr Murdoch revealed his Twitter profile was causing people close to him some angst.
“I’m getting killed for fooling around here and friends frightened what I may really say!” he wrote.
Oh, but don’t worry. It’s not like Murdoch’s feed isn’t still full of hilarious, demonic twatterings like this one:
Aren’t bazillionaires supposed to be sort of smart or something, to have figured out how to amass all that insane wealth? [Sydney Morning Herald]
