No one at the paper, which joined many others in drawing attention to the plight of refugees fleeing war on Thursday morning, seems to know why the tweet vanished from its main account.
The promotional tweet, which featured a smiling Hopkins and a quote from her 17 April column: “Show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don’t care.” was still up on Wednesday night. Yet by the time the print edition exhorting the prime minister to help prevent further refugee deaths hit the newsstands on Thursday morning, the post had been deleted.

And to think the Sun, last time I checked is the largest selling UK Newspaper. Don't forget Hopkins is a regular on TV channels in the UK. This is called entertainment these days, the rush to the bottom of the sewer.
