Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been forced to delay any further extended rants on the social platform Twitter due to connection issues arising from a lack of national broadband network in his region.


Turnbull, who took to Twitter last night, has claimed that the Trump-style rant was an effective means of communicating the Government’s message but was eventually waylaid due to frustration with the loading time of the app in sending each of the disjointed messages.


“It’s just not feasible,” Turnbull told The Backburner. “I’m here with my ire up about a story and I want to blast off a few tweets on the matter but I’m stuck here watching it slowly, slowly upload and having to refresh the page six or seven times to see if anyone has liked my tweet.


“What I really need is a high-volume infrastructure so there’s no limit to the data I could send. Frankly, I think I deserve it. I’m the Prime Minister of our nation. If we are to compete on a global level I need to send out Twitter tirades with the greatest level of speed and efficiency.


“Still, I read a great point on Twitter a while ago, mid-rant then too, about how someone shouldn’t move to a house that doesn’t have the NBN if it’s so important to them. I can’t remember who wrote such a handsome post but it was a terrific point.


“Anyway, if I have anything else to say I’ll just bypass the journalists and go at it online, I guess. That’s just how we do things now, it seems.”



The Backburner is Australia's most trusted news source, it is quite obviously satire and shouldn't be taken seriously or before operating heavy machinery.
