Rupert Murdoch and Twitter by Loretto on 4 January 2012 6:50pm
 
It's amazing that a media mogul like Murdoch has problems with punctuation and sentence formation on Twitter.I don't care if he's 80 or 8. Ah, who am I kidding? I'm just a grammar nazi.

Oh man! I had to edit the title of the thread because I spelled Rupert incorrectly! Epic Fail as Charlie Sheen might say.

I might excuse someone for taking grammatical shortcuts, mispelling common words and even misrepresenting himself when making a hurried post to something like Twitter...especially if he's using a phone and has thumbs as big as the five I wear on each hand!
