Imaginary conversation overheard last night in FG HQ Mount Street.
Ah Gay don’t worry at all of course we are fully behind you. We’re pulling all the stops out. Sure haven’t we Charlie Flanagan on radio all day saying that it’s early days in the campaign and all that.
So you stay up there in Donegal and Sligo visiting marts and the like tomorrow we’ll turn back on that twitter machine and get some of them auto tweet yokes.
D’ya remember them? During the general election we just pressed a button and all the FG reps sent out the same message en masse and sure it was marvellous. We’ll get everyone tweeting and retweeting each other and you’ll be all over the social media. It won’t cost a thing, sure we let that Singh lad go ages ago.
Anyway then you’ll know everyone in the parliamentary party is four square (ha) behind you. We’ll even get them putting dem twibbon thingies up on their avatars too.’
Bernard Durkan, Richard Bruton and Liam Twomey and others really did come back to twitter today after a long break (last February) and start spouting out tweets and retweets for Gay Mitchell. That’s sure to work that is.
