Should we care if Chris Pyne likes gay porn?

Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne has claimed his Twitter account was hacked after a picture of gay porn was liked at 2am.

ABC points out that, "As Defence Industry Minister, Mr. Pyne usually uses his Twitter account to discuss military hardware or sometimes to promote his media appearances". It was highlighted online by a bot account that tracks the activity of federal politicians. "I was [sleeping] at 2am".

Mr Pyne said hackers also tried to hack his Facebook page on Wednesday and that he was a target of a "campaign". "Maybe they are making mischief over the plebiscite?" he added, in reference to a national survey which had revealed strong support for same-sex marriage.

"I was hacked overnight!" he wrote.

Australian Conservatives senator Cory Bernardi also moved a motion in the Senate demanding the government investigate the hack, which Shorten said Labor would consider supporting. Opposition Leader Bill Shorten agreed, saying the government should take such possibility of security breach seriously.

"So I do think there should be some investigation and explanation".

Even Liberal senator Eric Abetz said the hack of the minister's "social media account" was a "matter of grave concern".

"There are no defence or national security implications".

"It's just a reminder you've got to change passwords regularly and in particular if the Twitter account is being operated by a number of people".

'We are satisfied that this is a public Twitter account, there is no connection between the Twitter account and Christopher's defence portfolio, ' he said.

US Republican senator Ted Cruz was embarrassed by a similar incident in September, blaming a Twitter like of a gay porn video clip on a staffer.
