A mistaken too hasty tweet about a Norwich Cathedral carol service is the centre of the latest social media storm.
Shadow chancellor Ed Balls, who became a cult social media figure after mistakenly posting his own name in 2012, managed to hit send too early on his tweet about a service at Norwich Cathedral last night.
He simply wrote “Fabulous” - a posting which was quickly re-tweeted more than 1,800 times by his followers.
Mr Balls, whose family live in the city, admitted his mistake, conceding: “Ok, Ok.. I pressed ‘send’ too early.. But thanks for all your ‘fabulous’ replies to my clearly prfound tweet...” (sic)
The original thought, later tweeted was: “Fabulous Carol service at Norwich Cathedral - John Tavener’s The Lamb the highlight, but you can’t beat In the Bleak Mid-Winter.”
