Exaro uses Twitter to garner support from more than 50 MPs on child sex abuse campaign

Investigative news website Exaro has used a Twitter campaign to get the support of more than 50 MPs in a call for Home Secretary Theresa May to hold an inquiry into the organised sexual abuse of children.

After breaking a story about a cross-party group of MPs sending a letter to May two weeks ago, the campaign has built up a “head of steam… driven by social media", Exaro claims.

And now the two original signatories are writing to every MP asking whether they will back the campaign.

Exaro editor-in-chief Mark Watts said: “What is remarkable about it is how the campaign for the inquiry has built up on Twitter.”

Here are a few of the MPs' tweets confirming their support for the campaign:
