This Twitter user echoed Trump's message to Hassan Rouhani after the Iranian president had said war with Iran would be the "mother of all wars", by replicating Eminem's Lose Yourself lyrics.

Giuliani's client Donald Trump is no stranger to sparking trending topics with a random word either. The US president added 'covfefe' to the public's vocabulary when he tweeted it by mistake in May 2017.

But no politician in Britain or the US can match the prestige which surrounds that of former shadow chancellor Ed Balls. Back in 2011, the star of Strictly Come Dancing tweeted, rather than searched for, his own name.The 28 April has been celebrated as #EdBallsDay on Twitter ever since.
