Tables Turn As Kim Jong-un Signs Up To Twitter And Blocks Trump


US MILITARY strategists have called an emergency meeting in the Pentagon this morning after it was revealed that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un unexpectedly signed up to Twitter last night before then blocking US President Donald Trump.

In what is being hailed as a “clinical move” by the 33-year-old, the tables have now turned on a stumped Trump administration, which later issued a blanket ban on speaking to the press over the incident.

“They didn’t expect this curve ball,” a political analyst told the Washington Post, “it’s a genius move by Kim; joining Twitter just to block his enemy is unprecedented, and to be honest, a lot of people here in Washington are impressed and starting to wonder what else he has up his ill-fitting sleeve”.

In just a matter of hours, Jong-un gained 26 million Twitter followers. However, most of these appear to have no profile picture, with just an egg as an avatar.

“We believe Kim forced everyone in North Korea to wake up in the middle of the night last night and sign up to Twitter after erecting thousands of internet base stations across the region,” alleged a South Korean source, “he put in place a new rule that everyone has to now follow him on Twitter and to retweet everything he posts, or face the death penalty”.

Since joining, Kim Jong-un has received a string of product placement offers from advertisers and is now 26th most followed person on the social media platform.
