Today marks the 2nd anniversary of the military coup in Thailand. I don’t think anyone thought that the generals would still be in control of the country two years later with no end in sight of a return to democracy. To mark the anniversary, I have posted highlights of the tweets as and when the coup happened, late in the afternoon of 22nd May 2015. My last tweet was at 3:30am. I then started tweeting again at 5am after a short nap.
As of 4:30pm, the Thai army has taken control of #Thailand. This is now officially a coup
