British Politician Tweets Link to Porn Website

British politician Rob Wilson was left embarrassed after posting a link to Twitter later revealed to be a link to a hardcore pornography website.

The Conservative MP for Reading East was attempting to direct his 3,700 Twitter followers to a blog post providing details of a complaint made about a BBC interview with Work and Pensions Minister Iain Duncan Smith. Instead of directing to the Guido Fawkes blog the link instead directed Wilson’s followers to Sexydigg.com, which directs users to the sites of live sex shows.

The embarrassing gaffe comes shortly after the ruling Conservative party reprimanded its MP’s for embarrassing the party through their use of social media sites, including Twitter, reports the Daily Mail.

Conservative officials claim the link was sent to Wilson from Conservative headquarters and the MP is blameless in the mistakenly Tweeted link; upon investigating the links Conservative officials found a missing digit in the web address given fort he blog led to redirection to Sexydigg.

Officials have called the problem a technical glitch, which has left the MP unhappy and embarrassed. Wilson was trying to redirect his followers to a blog giving details of the complaint made to the Director General of the BBC, Lord Hall made by fellow Tory MP Dominic Raab.
