Twitter Me This...

U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn tweeted this picture: "Winter has arrived in Austria! #letitsnow #winterishere"
There was an uproar on Twitter after Australian PM JULIA GILLARD Tuesday announced that Indian batsman SACHIN TENDULKAR "would be conferred with the Member of the Order of Australia award." Australian cricket fans criticized Gillard's decision "citing Tendulkar's role in the monkeygate scandal involving the countries' cricket teams" (IANS, 10/16). 

@Wombatfinanc: "Gillard's Order of Australia to Tendulkar is an insult to @CricketAust #MonkeyGate a racist attack on an Aussie. Remember Tendulkar? #auspol"

@GregBaum: "I love Sachin, but Order of Australia? I only ever saw him making disorder of Australia."

@churchillvic: "Pretty blatant marketing by Gillard giving Indian cricketer, who's done nothing of significance for Aus (a criteria), an Order of Australia"
