Rupert Murdoch cards turn Twitter gems into festive greetings | Media Monkey

Fans of Rupert Murdoch's musings on Twitter can now share his thoughts with their friends this festive season. No, the Times isn't publishing a Christmas supplement compiling its owner's thoughts – New York artist Michelle Vaughan has produced letterpress cards featuring a selection of his tweets, reports the Mediaite blog. There are choice words on phone hacking and more, plus "To hell with politicians! When are we going to find some to tell the truth in any country? Don't hold your breath." Sadly there are none of his more cryptic posts: tech fans might have appreciated "Please expose Eric Schmidt, Google etc. Just wait!", followed up with "Oops! Better ignore last tweet"; or politicos might have liked "Enemies many different agendas, but worst old toffs and right wingers who still want last century's status quo with their monoplies [sic]". However, if Murdoch keeps up his current output, there will be plenty more to pick from next Christmas.
