Everything you need to know about the #Adams arrest [in 13 tweets]…

So whilst we’re waiting for some definite news on the Adams arrest, here’s some of the tweets from last night:

– First from the unexpected new voice of liberal Ulster evangelicalism…

– Sinn Fein had clearly been preparing the ground for this event since 23rd March…

– Early reports suggesting he had been released…

– Proved groundless…

– It proved to be based on #Twitterstorm ‘evidence’…

– Surprisingly prompt and comprehensive analysis from Vox.com

– With just one little (well rather large actually) flaw at the end:

– Fleg protesters outside the policing station in Antrim where Adams is being held…

– For once it’s making a splash across the water…

– And further afield we find testimony to the extent of Adams’ international profile:

– Then came the wits…

– The sharpest bite of the evening from Vincent Browne visibly shaking with anger…

More serious commentary later… [So, stay tuned]
