Australian Twitter. It's a thing and it's a treasure-trove of commentary, musings and hilarious reactions to the circus that has been 2017 so far.
Between April Fools' Day, Cyclone Debbie, Ex-Cyclone Debbie flooding, Mark Latham's sacking (and ensuing Twitter-return) and 18C finally being taken out the back and metaphorically shot -- like the rabid-infested pest it has been on the Australian political agenda for the past three years -- it was a rather big week. And as usual, Australian Twitter made sure to keep in-step with the mad, bad and stupid goings-on.
Here, in no particular order, is a round-up of our favourite home-grown tweets from the past week.

Every season of #mkr needs a Josh. Yes he's a twit. Yes he's a little slow. Yes he's mean spirited. Now I've forgotten what I was saying

(Okay so there were a lot of tweets about Mark Latham's sacking)
The week also featured the always regular, always welcome Australian Twitter topic of dogs too. Including one Very Good Dog whose post-surgery photo generated so much interest he had to hire bodyguards.
