Huw Edwards appears to be having an Ed Balls moment and Ed Balls is here for it

In what is a vital update for your Friday afternoon, it appears that Huw Edwards is pulling an Ed Balls, having tweeted his own name.

It seems the veteran broadcaster, known for keeping a cool head as he fronts the BBC New at Ten most nights, may have let curiosity get the better of him as his latest tweet simply reads ‘Huw Edwards’, which Google Translate will handily let you know means ‘Huw Edwards’.

As Twitter reacts with glee, it’s worth looking back on April 28, 2011, now known as Ed Balls Day.

On that fateful day, Ed Balls was on Twitter and tried typing his name into the social media app to find an article about himself.

But instead of searching his name, he accidentally tweeted it out and the rest of Twitter was quick to pounce on his social media hiccup.

Is it now the case that 60-year-old Huw has fallen prey to the same search box/compose tweet confusion? Or is he simply pulling a fast one on us, as the hitherto successful sender of multiple tweets (and someone with a good sense of humour)?

At this stage, it doesn’t seem to matter as the journalist is trending on the social media site in the UK.

One person tweeted in response: ‘Many have tried to kill Ed Balls day, today is not that day Huw Edwards.’

Another commented: ‘I see Huw is taking on Ed Balls. Happy Huw Edwards day. Put it in your diaries.’

Some joked that former politician Ed would be upset by Huw Edwards’ move, sharing humorous video reactions, including one of Ed himself, in imagined responses to the tweet.

However, Ed is totally cool with welcoming a friend to his exclusive club.

The 2016 Strictly Come Dancing contestant gave Huw’s tweet a boost himself by retweeting it and adding his own ‘Huw Edwards’ to boot.

It remains to be seen what Huw’s response will be when he realises he’s trending.
