In a pioneering media exercise, BBC Somali conducted a social-media Q&A session with the EU Ambassador to Somalia, Michele Cervone d'Urso on Friday 27 February 2015. The BBC Somali audiences on BBC Facebook and BBC Twitter have had a chance to directly ask the EU representative the most pressing questions to do with the EU involvement in Somalia, including politics, security, economy and development. More than 800 questions have been sent in for the 90-minute live session with Ambassador d'Urso from the BBC Nairobi Bureau, in Somali, with the hashtag and English via #AsktheEUAmbassador. All the answers were posted on the BBC Somali Facebook account and the @SomaliaEU Twitter account.
The Q&A session on social media also built on BBC Somali’s radio interview with the EU Ambassador which was aired earlier that same day and can be consulted on the following link: http://bbc.in/1ETSGJ9
