ABSTRACT
JAMES Reilly is obviously fond of a bon mot... but at his own expense? The Brendan Grace lookalike is following just 91 people on the Twitter machine including a number of satirists. He has frequently been skewered by The Emergency, The Eleventh Hour, The Savage Eye and Vincent Browne but they are all among his choice picks. However, the biggest gag of all is that the troubled Health Minister has only 3,700 followers of his own, which pales in comparison to Joan Burton's 9,000 devotees and even Mick Wallace, who has just under 7,000.
