The ABC News presenter who was found to be hosting public Twitter lists on her account of those she categorised as Labor Trolls and Lobotomised Shitheads appears to have gone missing.

Fauziah Ibrahim normally fronts up for the ABC News morning program on the weekend, along with Joanna Nicholson.

But on Saturday and again on Sunday, Nicholson was joined by John Barron, who hosts the Planet America program. The ABC has made no public statement about the change or why it was necessitated.

The ABC was asked on Tuesday for a clarification as to what had actually happened, given that there were doubts over whether Ibrahim's Twitter account had been breached or whether she had created the lists herself.

A change of personnel: John Barron joined Joanna Nicholson on the ABC News morning program on Sunday.

No reply was received from the ABC that day.

An ABC spokesperson attempted to play down the faux pas last Sunday when iTWire — the first to report on the snafu — contacted the corporation, by saying the account was a personal one.

But as reported, the ABC has rules for its staff who maintain personal Twitter accounts.

In it, the corporation says while personal posts are not required to adhere to the corporation's editorial polices, two areas — impartiality and independence and integrity — should not be compromised.
