Tory MP Louise Mensch has made her debut as an internet entrepreneur, with the launch of a new social network hoping to win over Twitter addicts "who find Twitter frustrating".
Mensch launched the US-only social network, the almost eponymous Menshn.com, on Tuesday as a topic-based site allowing people to debate by subject rather than monitor a stream of often divergent tweets.

Conservative MP Louise Mensch has launched a microblogging site to rival Twitter.
Ms Mensch is a prolific Twitter user with almost 60,000 followers but said she has grown "frustrated" with it.
Her new site - Menshn - aims to keep conversations on topic and allows 180 character posts - 40 more than Twitter.
