The rush to take part in the national festivities made Senate President Maria Elizabeth Alberti Caselati the protagonist of a minor scandal on social networks. His communications staff will no doubt show the Senate president the joy of Italy’s overtime victory over Austria. For this reason, at midnight, shortly after the end of the match, a photo tweet was published in which Casallatti proudly shows off a blue shirt. The text of the tweet was: “Thank you friends, thank you Italy: Let’s move on!”, All with an emoticon of the tricolor flag. The problem is that Castellotti chose the wrong one, suggesting the flag of Ireland (green, white, and orange) to a wider audience of her followers. Color confusion.
Caselati Ireland, error on Twitter
More than 30 minutes after the tweet, many pointed out that Casellati had the wrong flag. The Senate President’s Communications staff immediately ran for cover and modified the tweet, now, this is:
– Maria Elizabeth Alberti Casellati (resPres_Casellati) June 26, 2021
Followers’ reactions on Twitter
However, social networks are known to be ruthless and unforgiving. So, in between comments, this is the real revolt of Irish flags and references to his previous tweet. One user is apt to show that all possible tricolor flags are similar to Italy (perhaps to prevent future errors): from the flag of Ivory Coast to Mexico, passing through Hungary, Tajikistan and Bulgaria, Iran and India.
