The government’s Department For Exiting The European Union joined Twitter on Thursday morning and it didn’t take long before people started trolling them.
The less than snappy name forced them to go with the similarly awkward @DExEUgov handle, and their first tweet simply read:
How very exciting.
Some tweeters suggested the lack of updates following on from the department’s first tweet served as a metaphor for the organisation as a whole, while others just chose to plainly troll them.
Some people quickly referenced their lack of official offices
And their lack of clarity on what “Brexit” actually means
Their very own parody account even popped up to say hello
It looks like running their Twitter account might end up being a fairly stressful job. Good luck to whoever has been lumbered with that.
