Comedy highlights from Twitter during the General Election

There are many people who see Twitter as a waste of time, indeed, I have only just come round to the idea.  For now, I would like to concentrate on the comedy potential of it.  Check out some of these Tweets I came across during the election.

So ‘The Markets’ are ok this morning. ‘Distracted by Greece’. Are they run by a three-year-old child?

RT@thejimsmith:Why are the LibDems like a London Bus? They’ve just under 60 seats & are now run by the Tories. #dontdoitnick #ge2010 #libcon

What’s the difference between the BNP and a bus? A bus has seats.

RT @martin_the_twit: @jimmycarr good to see the voting system works in this country. I voted for no-one, and they won!

@thefridgeman (aka Tony Hawks)

Have been to the voting booth. I spoiled my paper. I gave it a packet of sweets and told it to take the rest of the day off.

OK, so I follow some of the most boring political geeks in the country.  But I just thought it was nice that people kept their sense of humour as every party essentially did terribly and after a sleepless night we knew no more than the exit polls told us the night before.

Incidentally, you can follow me on twitter here 🙂

  1. I think my favourite tweet from the election was by Simon Pegg. During one of the leaders debates, an old lady asked questions about pensions.

    Pegg tweeted…’David Cameron just told an 84 year old woman he was going to do something in 2016. #LeadersDebate’
