Twitter users play with Telegraph’s Twitterfall #Budget feature

Good old online altruism eh? Twitter users have seized upon the opportunity to get their uncensored Tweets published on the Telegraph’s Budget page.

A Twitterfall feature – which now seems to have been removed – embedded on the side of the Budget 2009 page, picked up Tweets which referred to the UK Budget 2009.

Funnily enough, the Twitter masses seemed more interested in expressing opinions on the Telegraph’s editorial content, or saying hello to their mums, than adding to the economic debate.

@DarkPhnx perhaps sums it up best.

A sample from earlier below – we seem to have captured it at a cleaner moment. Or check out this grab from @Noodlepie.
