BBC Newsnight editor Ian Katz's Twitter gaffe was marked by Newsnight on Tuesday with a mocking mention in the credits.

The flagship show showed it's sense of humour as it called out Katz Twitter blunder with his username and the hashtag '#Fail'.

Katz, who was just over one week into his post as Newsnight editor, was left embarrassed after a message referring to his Labour guest as 'boring snoring' was tweeted to his 26,000 followers when he thought he was sending a private message (DM). The former Guardian deputy editor deleted the tweet when guest Reeves responded 'thanks', and published an apology via a Twitter pic after threats of boycott by members of the Labour party.
