Yesterday evening, at 17:53 hours, a random tweet appeared on the timeline of the @UKCivilService twitter page.
The 263k followers who keep tabs on what the UK Civil Service has to say were bewildered when a tweet popped up that said: “Arrogant and offensive…Can you imagine having to work with these truth twisters?”.
Within minutes, the tweet was ‘liked’ nearly 40k times with almost 32k retweets.
But it was not long until the tweet had been removed – almost as if someone had dared an admin to publish the tweet from the ‘drafts’ section of the Twitter App, but had then quickly regretted their decision.
The tweet had been published by the author using their iPhone. Had the account been hacked? Had someone commandeered the account managers iPhone? Who knows!
But the tweet certainly resonated with, let’s just say, quite a few people.
The Cabinet Office tweeted to say: “An unauthorised tweet was posted on a government channel this evening. The post has been removed, and we are investigating the matter”.
As is customary with the public sector, I am sure that a vast cake fine will be forthcoming.
