EU Tweets of the Week: The Good, the Bad and the Funny – 15 May 2015

Jennifer Baker presents EU Tweets of the Week, looking at the good, the bad and the funny in the European Union Twittersphere this week:

  • The bad: turmoil in the Balkans – violent clashes in Macedonia left 20 people dead.
  • The funny: EU Trade Insights editor spotted Cecilia Malmström’s team feeding the Trade Commissioner ‘optional jokes’ in her speech.
