EU Tweets of the Week: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – 30 October 2015

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

  • The Good: At last! The complete ban on data roaming charges will take effect in June 2017.

  • The Ugly: Despite the Volkswagen scandal, EU governments voted to allow new cars to emit more than twice the nitrogen oxides permitted under EU law.
