Most of the responses to Bishop’s Tweet suggest that he isn’t quite right in his criticisms of the Ministry for the Environment tweet.
One person used the phrase “better to be silent and be called a fool than to talk and remove all doubt”, while another stated that a government department’s Social Media team was not best-suited for coming up with a plan to fight Omicron.
“So, MoE’s social media manager increased engagement for each department through tapping into the latest obsessions of twitter? Is that your complaint, or? They did exactly what a social-media person is paid to do,” wrote another.
“They are not each responsible for a COVID response.”
One person who believed they were skilled at seeing the “miserable sides of just about everything” also took offense.
They wrote, “Even for myself, complaining about social media staff participating in the silly fun game ist a bit excessive.”
Apple took steps last week to remove apps that ripped off Wardle’s creation. The app can only be played on Wardle’s website.
Wardle also teamed-up with the creator of an older app bearing the same name to ensure that charity was benefited by anyone downloading the app believing it was his word game.
