Apparently tweeting a picture of yourself while looking very serious is now a thing that world leaders do - even if it does cause people to make fun of you a lot.
David Cameron recently spawned an "I'm-on-the-phone-to-Obama" internet meme when he tweeted a photo of himself talking to the US president.
And now Australian prime minister Tony Abbott is at it. Abbott, whose government is playing a key role in the hunt for the missing Malaysian plane, tweeted a picture of himself on Wednesday supposedly on the phone to the search team.

Abbott's concerned face is more than a match for Cameron's. Although the hand in the pocket stance might be a bit too casual.
