Stornoway Gazette in twitter storm

Stornoway GazetteReaders of the Stornoway Gazette twitter account would have been taken aback by a series of apparently self-critical tweets about the title.

Editor Melinda Gillen declined to comment on the three tweets which made references to it once being a “proud broadsheet” and attacked a member of staff. The tweets (read from bottom) were posted via the Stornoway Gazette account.

The newspaper sells around 8,000 copies weekly around the Western Isles.

Calls were referred to publisher Johnston Press whose comment was awaited.
