Watching Australian Politicians Figure Out Twitter Is Really Awkward

Video: When your parents ask you how many internet followers you have on Twittergram or how many pictures you've put up on Facetube, you just have to give them a hug for being adorable. When politicians stand up in the Australian Senate and try to land some zingers based on their half-baked understanding of social media, things get awkward.

This minute of video features Queensland Senator Ian Macdonald, who attempts to make fun of Greens Senator Scott Ludlam for...something. I'm not quite sure what yet.

The Greens turned it into a handy social media explainer video for YouTube.

Keep working on those zingers, Senator Macdonald.
