London: Keen-eyed political observers noticed an unusual feature in a tweet from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson congratulating US President-elect Joe Biden on his election victory: the ghost of an alternative message congratulating Donald Trump.

The words “Trump” and “second term” could be seen faintly in the background of the message, which was sent on Saturday from the Prime Minister’s Twitter account shortly after Biden was declared the winner of the US presidential election.

The British government blamed a technical glitch.

“As you’d expect, two statements were prepared in advance for the outcome of this closely contested election,” the government said.
