David Cameron commented on Twitter this morning about the cap on benefits being rolled out today: but in an attempt to be Twitter savvy, and link to Iain Duncan Smith, the tweet actually linked to a parody account.
Cameron, or his comms team, clearly just typed in ‘Iain Duncan Smith’ in the search box on Twitter and went for the first account returned: @IDS_MP.
The tweet has received over 200 retweets in half an hour, with the (fake) Iain Duncan Smith then responding:
Chin chin Dave. Round mine for a Pimms later?— Iain Duncan Smith MP (@IDS_MP) July 15, 2013
In April, Cameron linked to @StGeorgesDay - a gangster film – instead of using #StGeorgesDay.
