15 top John Key twitpics

by Toby Manhire / 16 July, 2012
The prime minister posts pictures aplenty on Twitter. Here are some of my favourites.
The intrepid travels of John Key are diligently documented on his Twitter account. And the PM's Twitter timeline is dominated by photographic evidence of his many and varied appearances.

Inspired by his latest photographic dispatch, which shows him gazing adoringly at the mayor of Christchurch, Bob Parker, at what appears to be a scintillating gathering of local government delegates in Queenstown (see below), here are 15 of my favourite prime ministerial twitpics from the last three months.

I'd go back further (who can forget the instant classic of John and Bronagh at the Taj Mahal?) but frankly there aren't enough hours in the day. Also my eyes might fall out.

(Update: here are John Key's three best social media photographs, like, eva!)
