Telstra channels Yes Minister

March 18, 2009

Sir Humphrey Appleby would be proud:

Last night I said that Telstra hadn’t shut down Leslie’s Twitter account. This was based on the advice of my colleagues. It’s factually correct, though it’s also true that Leslie’s senior managers independently told him last night to stop.

So it’s factually correct that Telstra did not ask that the Fake Stephen Conroy Twitter account be shut down, but it’s also true that they did ask the account to be shut down.

Now we’re talking gibberish 😉
