Your positive and open approach is welcomed by @BrianVisits, and the dialogue continues up until the launch event. He even tweets to the Commissioner saying he is looking forward to the Commissioner’s visit for the full launch of the #BubbleLift:
Some users joined the Twitter discussion and were critical of the European Union for having part-funded such a controversial project, but the solid reputation of @BrianVisits helps you to keep the discussion narrow and focused on the project itself, not the wider politics.
YOUR RESULT: Good. The Commissioner is happy to see the tweet, and you have reached a small but not insignificant new audience and helped out an influential blogger.
