Challenge accepted. In fact Robbie's twitter history reveals rather more than he might suspect...

Thread (1/x)
Which politician has Robbie Gibb tweeted about more than any other? A search on Twitter gives us the following statistics, with the clear winner being Nigel Farage. (2/x)
Many of Gibb's tweets about Nigel Farage were promoting his appearances on the BBC, including segments like this which was aired in the months before the 2014 European elections. (3/x)
In response to a viewer who feared Nigel Farage was being used as an entertainer, Gibb reassured him that he had been on the Daily Politics show that week for a full hour, covering a range of topics. (4/x)
Why was there such a disproportionate interest in Nigel Farage, and what does it say about the influence of Gibb's own views on the way politics was covered by the BBC during that period? (5/x)
Of course, if you take Gibb's challenge more literally, it's not hard to find an example of him stating his personal view on Brexit, smiley included. 😉 (6/6)
PS: One of Robbie Gibb's oddest tweets was this, where he promoted an appearance of Nigel Farage on Andrew Marr using the hashtag #MannKiBaat.
Mann Ki Baat is an Indian programme hosted by PM Narendra Modi that was trending on the day in question.
