Made social media outcasts of other politicians
David Cameron once said “too many tweets might make a twat”. While he’s since joined the social network, you can see why he may wish he hadn’t, given his every tweet is met with abuse or ridicule. Then there was that time he accidentally became a meme.
But, much as he may dislike Twitter, he hasn’t lost his job over it. Unlike the Labour MP Emily Thornberry, who proved it was indeed possible for one tweet to cause a political resignation.
