David Cameron was probably hoping the Internet had moved on from guffawing over salacious tales about his alleged university activities.
The Prime Minister braved his first post on Twitter since the scandal over a book penned by close friend Lord Ashcroft and journalist Isabel Oakeshott hit the front pages of national newspapers earlier this week.
Attempting to restore a tone of serenity to an otherwise packed feed of people tweeting pig jokes at the Tory leader, Cameron posted on Wednesday: "We're committing another £100m to refugee camps. Making sure people are well looked after stop them making the dangerous journey across Europe."
We're committing another £100m to refugee camps. Making sure people are well looked after stops them making the dangerous journey to Europe.

Unfortunately though, Twitter being Twitter, social media users were having none of it.
The scandal over '#piggate' was reignited with users offering brainy puns in response to the message, including "oink", "you still shagged a pig" and "pig molester".
