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

May 14, 2015 - EU Institutions

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

  • Most debated: Tory landslide in the UK elections got the Twittersphere all aflutter as the prospect of a Brexit looms larger. While Nigel Farage ‘unresigns’ only 3 days later.
  • The good: on Wednesday, the European Commission presented a concrete action plan to address the immigration crisis that Europe faces.
  • 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.
