Peter Dunne ‏@PeterDunneMP 

Today is Internet/Mana's high point. Having done such arrangements before, I can confidently say it's likely to be all downhill from here

 

Joshua Hitchcock ‏@jcphitchcock 

Any plans for a United Future & Conservatives deal? United Con v Mana Dot Con in the battle of the dodgy deals.

 

Heath duPlessisAllan ‏@hdpaNEWS 

I ran 'Mana Mana doo doo doo Internet!' past Hone Harawira as a better party name but he didn't seem keen.

 

Lucy Craymer ‏@Lucy_Craymer 

Is the Internet Party using a reverse listing to get into parliament like Mega's reverse takeover bid is about getting on the NZX?

 

Alex Coleman ‏@ShakingStick 

Any number of classic internet memes are available for poiltical cartoonists right meow

 

Andrew Chen ‏@bobsalive 

Predicting that Mana Party will take a much bigger hit in party membership than Internet Party as a result of the alliance...

 

Martyn Bradbury ‏@CitizenBomber 

Where are all the msm pundits now who claimed MANA-IP wouldn't happen?

 

James Macbeth Dann ‏@edmuzik 

I guess "iMana" would have resulted in Apple's lawyers descending on the party, which is probably not what KDC needs right now

 

Martyn Bradbury ‏@CitizenBomber 

Love watching press gallery journalists struggle with the concept of Internet MANA in my twitter feed

 

Andrea Vance ‏@avancenz 

Oooooh. Hone is predicting a "shake up" in the #nzpol landscape.

 

Lew ‏@LewSOS 

It looks like the Mana and Internet party lists will Merge Like a .ZIP

 

Andrea Vance ‏@avancenz 

Internet Mana Party. Wait - imp - is that what we are calling it?

 

Lew ‏@LewSOS 

Here is your #Internana sound track for today. You're welcome.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N_tupPBtWQ …

 

Laura McQuillan ‏@mcquillanatorz 

Given the Internet Party will pick up most of the bill for the coalition, why did Dotcom give the Internet Party $250k last month?

 

Lyndon Hood ‏@lyndonhood 

TBH if I'd associated Hone Harawira with a digital issue before this, it would have been a raised middle one. So they have that in common.

 

Trish Sherson ‏@TrishSherson 

@avancenz I thought #mananet was much catchier.

 

Marcus Cook ‏@MarcusDCook 

"Internet-MANA", cos "muppet show" was taken.

 

Joshua Hitchcock ‏@jcphitchcock 

Kelvin Davis has a wonderful platform to take back Te Tai Tokerau for Labour now.

 

The Egonomist ‏@TheEgonomist 

Internet Party leader is.... chris cairns lol

 

Thomas Beagle ‏@thomasbeagle 

Is this the point where the Internet Party goes from joke to farce? #votecivilian

 

Heath duPlessisAllan ‏@hdpaNEWS 

Oh man they're calling themselves Internet Mana. Couldn't they have paid someone to come up with a decent name?

 

Marcus Cook ‏@MarcusDCook 

"Anti John Key Party" would have been more accurate. Plus touch on their only similarity.

 

Andrew Chen ‏@bobsalive 

You fools! The Internet Party was running low on mana and but you gave them a potion now they can cast all their magic spells! We're doomed!

 

Alex Coleman ‏@ShakingStick 

Please please please not bomber RT @avancenz Leader of Internet Party to be unveiled on Thursday

 

Reed Fleming ‏@reedfleming Protected Tweets 

Cannot wait to see response from Mana activists.

 

The Egonomist ‏@TheEgonomist 

MMP rorts be MMP rorts.

 

David Slone ‏@Head_Weasel 

@rnzdemelza Today Mana lost their Mana

 

Philip Matthews ‏@secondzeit 

Conscious coupling. #ManaInternet

 

Lyndon Hood ‏@lyndonhood 

Manternet would be a terrible choice at the moment so I guess that leaves Internana.

 

Marcus Cook ‏@MarcusDCook 

Internet-MANA. #anythingforbaubles

 

Trish Sherson ‏@TrishSherson 

At 11am @KimDotcom and #HoneHarawira will walk down the aisle. Marry in haste, repent at leisure. #nzpol pic.twitter.com/44puxtUe4F

 

Claire Trevett ‏@CTrevettNZH 

Harawira says once it became clear who Internet Party were considering as leader, it made it easier to continue negotiations.

 

Rachel Stewart ‏@RFStew 

I predict MegaHone.

 

Guy Williams ‏@guywilliamsguy 

Good luck for the internet today guys!

 

Heath duPlessisAllan ‏@hdpaNEWS 

Taking suggestions on possible names for Mana Party and Internet Party merger...

 

Laura McQuillan ‏@mcquillanatorz 

@hdpaNEWS I've heard Dotcommunists bandied about

 

Rob Hosking ‏@robhosking 

@mcquillanatorz @hdpaNEWS the Pirate Party's been taken, unfortunately. Mind you, taking it & not acknowledging copyright would be apt.
