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 🙂
