‘Oops, tweeted before thinking’

French President Francois Hollande’s partner Valerie Trierweiler admitted on Wednesday that she had made a mistake in firing off a tweet snubbing Hollande’s ex-companion and said she regretted it. ‘It was a mistake that I regret. I must have been clumsy because this was badly interpreted,’ Trierweiler told newspaper Ouest-France. ‘I had not yet realised that I was no longer a simple citizen. It won’t happen again.’ During parliamentary elections in June, Trierweiler sent out a tweet wishing good luck to an opponent of Segolene Royal-Hollande’s ex-partner and mother of their four children. The tweet attracted widespread media coverage, with the French press calling it an embarrassment to Hollande shortly after his victory in the presidential race. There has been speculations of intense rivalry between Royal and Trierweiler.
