EU Tweets of the Week: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – 7 March 2014

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

– Most debated: the European Ombudsman interactive event “Your wish list for Europe” received a lot of attention on Twitter with #EUwishlist
– The good: Italian Oscar winner “La Grande Bellezza”, supported by the EU MEDIA programme
– The bad: Vice-President of the European Parliament, Polish MEP Jacek Protasiewicz, was caught by police at Frankfurt airport after allegedly shouting “Heil Hitler” at a customs official
– The ugly: viEUws noticed that Martin Schulz’ Twitter account as the President of the European Parliament became the account of Schulz as candidate for President of the European Commission, which means that people that have been following the EP President, automatically became supporters of his election campaign. Are they aware of this “trick”?
