'Did you know that Silvio' turns from promotion to laugh

Twitter feed boomerangs against ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi (ANSA) - Rome, December 19 - Although ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi owns much of the mass media in Italy, he's lost control of a Twitter feed set up in his honour.

The Twitter feed "Did you know that Silvo..." was set up to promote various good works by the disgraced premier, but lately it has been used against him.

As the 76-year-old considers a political comeback, an avalanche of posts against Berlusconi have flooded the hashtag "# losapevichesilvio".

High volumes have even pushed it to the top of Twitter's most popular feeds.

So instead of rhetorical questions, such as: "Who has allocated 65 million euros for new homes and university" jibes are now flying at Berlusconi, including "Who blocked Parliament for a year to block his trial for prostitution?"
