Brits baffled as PM’s official Twitter account share bizarre photo of woman ‘with third arm’ – The Sun
BRITS have been left baffled after the Prime Minister's official Twitter account shared a message urging people to stay home – with a perplexing photo.
The social media account posted a picture of two women sharing some popcorn while cuddling their dog – but many were left confused at the odd appearance of what appeared to be a random arm between them.

The hand appears to have a black sleeve – despite neither of the women wearing black.
One person tweeted: "Whose hand is that with the black sleeve? And who’s hiding under the cushion behind the dog? Any ideas, Twitter?"
Another added: "What in the holy hell is this shapeshifter dog doing growing a human arm ?"
A third said: "This picture is weird – what’s happening below the bowl and whose hand is emerging from the dog?"
Another joked: "Hundreds of Britons stayed home figuring out whose arm was whose. Good strategy."
Others were quick to jump in with their own memes, with one sharing a photograph of the Addams' Family hand.
While some suggested it was a photoshop fail, it appears that the arm belongs to the model wearing a beige jumper but is simply at an odd angle.
The Tweet was shared two days ago but has since started to be shared more and more online.
The photograph had been posted along with the message: "For staying safe there's no place like home."
It added: "Stay home, protect the NHS, save lives."
Millions of Brits have heeded the government's warnings during the coronavirus lockdown, staying inside to reduce the risk of infection.
The UK death toll has so far exceeded more than 15,000 with more than 114,000 cases across the country.
The lockdown is expected to last for at least another three weeks in an effort to stop the spread.
However the old and vulnerable could face indefinite lockdown unless a vaccine is developed soon.
It comes after David Nabarro, professor of global health at Imperial College London and an envoy for the World Health Organisation on Covid-19, said we are going to have live with the "constant threat" of the virus.
Mr Nabarro told The Observer: "You don’t necessarily develop a vaccine that is safe and effective against every virus.
"Some viruses are very, very difficult when it comes to vaccine development – so for the foreseeable future, we are going to have to find ways to go about our lives with this virus as a constant threat.
"That means isolating those who show signs of the disease and also their contacts. Older people will have to be protected.
"In addition hospital capacity for dealing with cases will have to be ensured. That is going to be the new normal for us all."
But Professor Sarah Gilbert, Professor of Vaccinology at Oxford University, today warned the vaccine might not protect individuals against coronavirus forever.
And she added that anyone who has been infected by the virus could still get it again despite hopes patients could develop a level of immunity.
Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, Prof Gilbert said: "We can't say for certain with this particular coronavirus but from what we know about other coronaviruses that infect humans and that infect animals, we know that immunity isn't very long lived."
