LETTER: Check Twitter followers

I read with humour in The Sunday Times of Conservative candidate Caroline Ansell’s recent social media misstep.

It seems as though she has been trying to bump up her social media support on Twitter by ‘following back’ every user that asks to follow her - including young women who repeatedly post explicit content of themselves!

Now, Mrs Ansell is perfectly entitled to use social media for whatever purposes she pleases, but the media exposé is rather ironic given that she says on her website that ‘there is a major problem nationally with the sexualisation of young people’.

Perhaps before inflating her online following, Mrs Ansell should first check exactly who those followers are.

Just a thought.
