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: Competition Commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, ruled that Starbucks and Fiat received illegal state aid from the Netherlands and Luxembourg, now they must recover up to €20-30 million.
- The Bad: Angela Merkel’s controversial U-turn on Turkey’s EU accession process in a desperate bid to contain the refugee crisis.
- The Ugly: Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker might have overstepped his mark by calling an EU leaders meeting. Will there be “handbags at dawn” with EU Council President, Donald Tusk?
