While Elon Musk is trying to fire half of Twitter employees and trades with Stephen King for a blue tick, users of the social network are having as much fun as they can. For example, they invented a new country in Europe, in the existence of which many people believed. This story is told by Euronews.
It all started on October 30, 2022, when the user Gaspardo posted on Twitter a map of Europe on which an additional country from the Atlantic side appeared on the Iberian Peninsula, moreover, it was painted as if it were a country of the European Union. “I’m sure that Americans don’t even know the name of this country,” Gaspardo wrote.
Je suis sûr que les américains ne connaissent même pas le nom de ce pays ptdrrr pic.twitter.com/aecSupQdyU

C’est en 1661 que le Listenbourg connait l’une des plus grandes guerres de son histoire, en effet en 1661 Louis XIV prend le pouvoir en France et se fait appeler “le Roi-Soleil” terme volé au Roi Listen XV, qui se faisait déjà appelé le roi Soleil, ce qui énerve le Listenbourg. pic.twitter.com/QGaKDAnRgl
