Lord Sugar: "Can't believe what I am seeing [on]TV with thugs rioting all over London. Gov might have to call in Army."
John Benjamin: "The broom should become the symbol for the peoples' resistance to this anarchy - or perhaps a sandal or a gourd."
Shomrim London: "Stores in Golders Green have been told to close early. Kosher Kingdom closing at 6:30."
Bored of Deputies (spoof account): "We are meeting local councils today to explain how sending youths to Israel post-GCSEs prevents rioting, by removing thugs from the country."
Daniel Slavin: "Dear World, We have great Pleasure in inviting you to London next year for the Olympics. P.S bring a hard hat + running shoes #londonriots."
Joanna Vos: "You know it looks bad when...Israelis start checking you're okay."
Leigh Gower: "Looters ransacked Curry's Digital in Croydon but left Waterstones alone. So they're not interested in books then #LondonRiots"
Adam Langleben: "Spoke to an officer. Recalled from holiday. 1 hour sleep in 24 hours. 12 hour shifts from tomorrow for 10 days. #londonriots #police"
David Aaronovitch: "I'm not sure I would judge the efficacy of an anti-riot weapon on whether rioters enjoyed its use."
