Tony had his onions, but it seems like a smartphone is a far more fitting symbol for a former Communications Minister. At least that's what Instagram account @textsfrommalcolm has gone with. It's an account that captions photos of our new Prime Minister looking bored on his phone in Parliament, with imaginings of just who he is sending his important texts to. It seems like @textsfrommalcolm has been pro-Turnbull since day one — or at least from back in March when its first photo was posted — explaining their choice in politicians with the simple caption: 'Because Tony Abbott doesn't have opposable thumbs.'
It's political satire for the technologically savvy, with Malcolm being shown texting everyone from his political henchwoman Julie Bishop to apparent best bro Prince Harry. Even before the fateful spill, the Instagram account kept Malcolm up to date with all the trending topics. "Bought malcolm.porn just in case," he tells Taylor Swift in one post from back in March, and more recently in July can be seen offering to lend Bronwyn Bishop his helicopter. While we'll never really know what's actually on the Prime Minister's phone screen as he sits through Question Time, following @textsfrommalcolm is probably far more entertaining anyway. Although you never know — he could be down in Canberra right now, taunting Tony Abbott with texts of: "New Prime Minister. Who's this?"
