Made official @ 9:35…leaked 10 min earlier via Twitter…

The announcement for australia’s first female prime minister was first leaked from parliament house via twitter from the user @SamanthaMaiden & it announced unconfirmed on TV.

It wasn’t until 10 minutes later that the labour parties official press conference announced the news.

Also the foreign currency market showed news, before it even hit TV. Both last night during the meeting & press conference & again this morning during the ballot. Although it’s interesting to note that the Australian dollar went down after the announcement.
