EU Tweets of the Week: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly – 1 April 2016

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: A week after the tragic terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgian security services face accusations of incompetence in failing to prevent the horrendous events.
  • The Good: The Commission is to provide milk to some 350,000 Syrian children. ‘Not much’ some will say, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. It will help EU farmers too!
  • The Bad: Turkey is at it again. Erdogan is in the international community’s cross hairs after demanding a German satirical online video be deleted. So much for freedom of expression
  • The Ugly: One of the main Brexit supporter groups is employing migrant workers to rally support… Oh, the irony!
