What does Sarah Palin do? Quite a lot, according to Twitter, which was flooded by the hashtag #SarahPalinDoes on Tuesday as members of the social network pondered myriad uses for the former Republican vice-presidential candidate.

The trend started when US commentator Tucker Carlson went on TV and had the temerity to question Mama Grizzly’s utility, saying: ”I’m not clear what Sarah Palin does, actually.”

Twitter was quick to provide the answer, as favourable…and mostly not so favourable answers besieged the network. Even Palin herself got in on the act (or at least the person who runs her account did).
