Speaking at a media conference in Penistone earlier today, Sir Norman said: "There may also be some slight disruption to our Twitter feed during this period while our our communications staff - who will be accompanying me on a fact finding trip to Sardinia - concentrate their efforts on collecting as many facts as possible to make the journey worthwhile."
Sir Norman denied allegations in the August edition of Offal Monthly that the decision was a result of investigations into the TMB's use of the social media by the industry watchdog, OffOffal. "These matters are quite separate and have no bearing on my decision today. Followers can rest assured that a full Twitter service will be resumed as soon as possible, whatever the outcome of this so-called investigation," Sir Norman said.
