Best Twitter gags as George Osborne joins the site
20 March 2013 10:09 AM
Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has chosen today, Budget day, to join the international Twitter community, becoming @George_Osborne. He tweeted his first around 8.40 this morning, and sadly it wasn't a LOL cat link.
The excitement on the social media site was immediately palpable (but not always polite):
@The_Dolphin_Pub: George Osborne should have "I like to budget, budget. I like to... BUDGET!" as his walk-on music. Then people would like him.
