Abstract

At 11:35 AM on 2 February 2016, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, tweeted: ‘To be or not to be together, that is the question…’ A link to Tusk’s European Council letter outlining his proposed ‘new settlement for the United Kingdom within the European Union’ was included. Jennifer Jackson-Preece suggests that this curious Shakespearean moment invites reflection on the dynamics and significance of Brexit politics on Twitter.
