COMMENT - Example

IT seems the great and good of Wigan have defended the town’s honour in the wake of the Twitter storm caused by the rapper Example.

What started as a tweet yesterday morning has led to a national story and the man himself explaining his actions to the local media.

What this has proved is how potent a medium Twitter has become as it allows people access the direct thoughts of celebrities and people we look up to.

However, in this case one would hope it was all taken in good humour and that the few idiots issuing death threats have a hard look at themselves.
