Major Oops From The Secret Service!
One would think that the Secret Service would be a little responsible about using microblogging site Twitter, but that one could be wrong!
Apparently a US government employee fell in the hazards of tweeting from multiple accounts. But his other account wasn’t just another account – it was the US Secret Services’ verified account! Yes, there is no mistake. And yes, you just read that correctly. From what we can piece the person was supposed to monitor a FOX news story, and inadvertently ended up tweeting about it from the said account – a gaffe of the highest proportion!
Even though the tweet was deleted just seconds later (presumably when the person realized their mistake!) but in the intricate world of the internet web it was caught, forever. The United Secret Service immediately issued a statement regarding the “unapproved and inappropriate tweet,” and said it “did not reflect the views of the U.S. Secret Service,” and the individual responsible — “who mistakenly believed they were on their personal account”.
Here is the screenshot of the tweet as it was made – immortal.
Here are some of the priceless reactions to that tweet!
