Timor-Leste's Foreign and Defence Minister quits by SMS

Just spotted this over at Mobile Jones. Debi's picked up on a story where Timor-Leste's Foreign Defence Minister, Jose Ramos-Horta, quit his job by text message to the Prime Minister, Mari Alkatiri.

The text message apparently read:

"I do not wish to be associated with the present government or with any government involving Mr. Alkatiri."

I think that's a first! We've had divorce by text message before now, but I've never heard of a governent minister resigning by text before. I wonder what's next? You can read more about it here on Cellular News.
