EU Tweets of the Week: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly – 8 April 2016

April 7, 2016 - EU Institutions

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 spotlight is back on the Mediterranean as the EU started to return refugees in Greece to Turkey and Commissioner Avramopoulos formally launched talks for a new EU border management.
  • The Good: With geoblocking reform on the cards thanks to digi Veep Andrus Ansip, BEUC’s #stopGeoblocking video shows how ridiculous the practice is.
  • The Bad: Dutch citizens massively rejected the EU-Ukraine association agreement. Another blow for the EU?
  • The Ugly: The Leave EU campaign wanted to make a point criticising MEPs napping on the job… but they used pictures taken in the Belgian Parliament. #Fail
