Greek Prime Minister Blasts Turkey on Twitter Over Russian Plane Downing


A strange and belated Twitter outburst took place on Sunday when Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras blasted his Turkish counterpart, Ahmet Davutoglu, in a series of four Tweets on his official English Twitter page about Turkey’s downing of a Russian fighter jet last week.

Tsipras’ official English language account posted four successive tweets, criticizing Turkey and mocking Turkey’s trigger happy approach. “Fortunately our pilots are not mercurial as yours against the Russians,” one of the Tweets stated.


The Tweets were quickly deleted but with all things on line, not before screenshots could be saved and images of them retweeted and shared throughout the world.

Tsipras, however, kept the tweets on his official Greek-language twitter page.
