Morning Twitter Messages -- August 10

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has found a drone that he likes. And it delivers beer.
Paul — whose national prominence rose earlier this year with a 13-hour one-man filibuster protesting U.S. drone policy, joked in a message on Twitter that he's not opposed to all drones
The Tea Party favorite mulling a presidential bid in 2016 linked to a Agence France-Presse article that describes a flying drone that delivers beer to patrons in South Africa at a music festival. The unmanned plane uses GPS technology to track a patron’s location before dropping the alcohol by parachute.

Has Australia found its Sarah Palin?
Despite international headlines calling One Nation candidate Stephanie Banister, 'Australia's Sarah Palin', her party doesn't believe she needs media training.

GENEVA — Talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism while shopping in Switzerland — and the national tourism office agrees. 
The media mogul, who is one of the world's richest women, told the U.S. program "Entertainment Tonight" that a shop assistant in Zurich refused to show her a handbag because it was "too expensive" for her. 
Forbes magazine estimates that Winfrey earned $77 million in the year ending in June.
A spokeswoman for the Swiss tourism office, Daniela Baer, told The Associated Press on Friday "we are very sorry for what happened to her." 
The tourism office also posted an apology on Twitter, saying "this person acted terribly wrong."
Winfrey was in town to attend last month's wedding of longtime pal Tina Turner, who lives in Switzerland.
