Sam Mostyn: Read Australia's next Governor-General's controversial deleted ... trends now

Australia's new Governor-General referred to Australia Day as 'invasion day' and urged the country not to 'waste' the opportunity offered by the Uluru Statement from the Heart in now-deleted comments posted to X. 

Sam Mostyn wiped her social media presence before Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced the businesswoman, gender and climate activist as General David Hurley's replacement on Wednesday morning.

The once prolific tweeter - who boasted 22,000 followers on X - wiped clean her X, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts just prior to her appointment to the vice-regal role.

But posts Ms Mostyn made over the years - obtained by Daily Mail Australia - offer an insight into the politics of the woman now tasked with representing King Charles in Australia.

Ms Mostyn was a leading advocate for the Indigenous Voice to Parliament, hosting and participating in panels about the referendum alongside Yes campaigner Thomas Mayo.

She advocated for a Yes vote online, took part in Michael Long's 'Long Walk Oz' to Canberra promoting the Indigenous advisory panel and joined virtual yarning circles with Pat Anderson AO and Professor Megan Davis.

The banner picture of her X account was, for a lengthy period of time, a poster which declared, 'We support the Uluru Statement'.

And on January 25, 2020, Ms Mostyn wrote: 'This 26 January, NITV Sunrise Ceremony cleansing ceremonies, 80,000 yrs Australian history, wonderful panel discussing survival, truth, #invasionday & the future.'

She then included another hashtag which stated: '#AlwaysWasAlwaysWillBe.'

Reconciliation Australia, a foundation focused upon healing the divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, celebrated her appointment on Wednesday, revealing - in addition to the long list of qualifications touted by the PM in his statement - she also served on their board.

'Sam is a former board member of Reconciliation Australia (2007-2010) & has been a dedicated advocate for reconciliation, First Nations rights, climate change & many other causes during her career,' the organisation said.

Ms Mostyn made another post on July 30, 2022 after Prime Minister Anthony Albanese committed to the referendum into the Voice to Parliament, and in the wake of Aboriginal activist and singer Archie Roach's death.

She said: 'Cannot think of a more bittersweet day - from the exhilaration & hope for a Voice to be enshrined in our Constitution to the devastating, deep sadness on the loss of Archie Roach.

'Australia cannot waste a moment in accepting the Uluru Statement from the Heart.'

Ms Mostyn also appeared to celebrate the election of the Teal independents at the 2022 federal election. 

'Just in case you hadn't already heard them roar,' she tweeted - sharing an article about the 'pro-climate women who took on the Liberal Party and won.

These were all removed by the time she was announced as the incoming Governor-General on Wednesday.

'She has also held senior non-executive roles on boards including Transurban, Virgin Australia, and has been chair of Citibank Australia. She currently chairs AWARE
