Uh oh. Rupert Murdoch is catching hell for what appears to be a Twitter misfire after he tweeted the name of Conservative MP and chick lit writer Louise Mensch. Yep, just her name.

Mensch was subjected to vile, misogynistic tweets earlier this week when she and other Conservatives in Parliament voted they would not back a report calling Murdoch “not a fit person to run an international company.”

Some in the Twitterverse connected Murdoch’s cryptic tweet to Mensch’s support for him, while others thought it might be a senior moment.
