Daily Telegraph has embraced the hip new thing that is Twitter.
So, it decided to add a UK Budget Twitter Fall (live streaming update of tweets) to its site. This means that any tweet containing "#budget" makes it onto the paper's site.
I'm sure you'll be shocked to learn that some mischievous twitterers have been having a bit of fun with this.
worldsmycountry: Breaking news: Barclay Brothers [Telegraph owners] to pick up your tax bill in unprecedented act of philanthropy. #Budget
BorisWatch: Will Lewis [Telegraph editor] smells of old man's pants #budget
chickyog: Well that's the Telegraph's #budget twitterfeed boned. What shall we destroy next?
Unfortunately the Twitter Fall has been removed but the
Guardian have managed to snatch some screen shots
