MPs who misuse social media: an update. My list of MPs who block constituents for asking (polite) questions on Twitter and FB now has 135 names. 9 are not Tories. Recently added offenders are:
Boris Johnson @BorisJohnson
Fiona Bruce
Miriam Cates
Ben Everitt @Ben_Everitt
Chris Green @CGreenUK
Lucy Allan @lucyallan
Andrew Jones @AJonesMP
Alexander Stafford @Alex_Stafford
Mark Tami (Lab) @MarkTamiMP

All Tories unless otherwise stated. Those without Twitter handles are either FB offenders or have deleted their accounts.Some use Parler instead
Boris Johnson is a FB offender. He blocked a constituent for politely suggesting he might not make a good PM...
Please let me know if your MP has blocked you for no good reason on social media. #blockedbymymp #digitaldemocracy
