Oz PM Kevin Rudd 'following' porn on Twitter

Subscribe to Oneindia News

London, May 3 (ANI): Aussie Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was left red-faced after it was revealed that he has been following porn sites online - all thanks to his inadvertent Twitter settings.

In addition to having his wife, Therese Rein, as a supporter, he has been accidentally following several seedy sites, including a porn blogger, an online adult superstore and a handcuffed bare-breasted woman.

A spokesman for Rudd has admitted that a Twitter automated programme made the prime minister's account auto-follow those who followed him.

"While the Kevin PM Team try to monitor the follow backs, with more than 900,000 followers this is a very large task," Sky News quoted the spokesman as saying.

Although it normally requires a Twitter account holder to view another person's profile before following, an option allows this to be done automatically.

This can be helpful for people with large followings-Rudd follows around 200,000 Twitter users through his KevinRuddPM account.

Industry experts warn that users should be aware that social media networks such as Twitter do have potentially dangerous implications.

According to the Herald Sun newspaper, other profiles followed by the premier include sex show webcams and a gay resort in Thailand's Phuket region.

Rudd has been a keen user of social media and has used Twitter to reveal new policies and even the impending wedding of his son. (ANI)
