Heard in Europe

Is the EU Council press office trying to tell the Greeks something?

They’ve made the somewhat astonishing decision to use a giant picture of a Trojan Horse on their Storify, which is dedicated to journalists’ tweets about Greece and tonight’s summit of eurozone leaders on the crisis.

Now international diplomacy isn’t an easy game to master. Especially when emotions are running high.

But even Heard in Europe knows that comparing the arrival of Tsipras and Syriza in Brussels with the sack of Troy is unlikely to win many Greek friends.

A closer look at the Storify also suggests that tweets that are critical of the Greek government seem to get picked out…

Shortly after publication we got this explanation, which led to a quick chat with the Eu Council press team.

You can find the changed Storify here.

A major diplomatic incident successfully averted by Heard in Europe!
