National Park Service Back On Twitter After Apologizing

Share

The National Park Service returned to Twitter on Saturday after apologizing for tweets on Friday that apparently irked the Trump administration.

"We regret the mistaken RTs from our account yesterday and look forward to continuing to share the beauty and history of the parks with you," the National Park Service tweeted about 10:30 a.m. Eastern on Saturday.

Many NPS twitter feeds went silent Friday afternoon after the newly installed Trump administration ordered the Interior Department to idle its accounts.

"... All bureaus and the department have been directed by incoming administration to shut down Twitter platforms immediately until further notice," read a notice that went out across the National Park System.

The issue behind the order was apparently an unflattering retweet the National Park Service made comparing crowds at President Obama's 2009 inauguaration and Trump's inauguration. The photos were telling: gaps in the crowds for Trump's inauguration, and a National Mall practically bursting at the seams for Obama's.

This would be funny if it wasn't such a tragic reflection on the state of our nation.


So sad that American citizens are lo longer allowed to see historical protographs documenting reality. It is now up to the Dictator to tell us if his thin skin is willing to allow facts, photographs, science etc.... 

 

 

 


I see no reason why an appology is needed. It's just a historical photograph that compares two events.  Nothing more, and nothing less.  Just because there was about a 1/2 the crowd for Trump doesn't change FACTS!


What do you think would happen in the private sector if an employee used corporate resources in an attempt to publicly mock his CEO?

Trump is not dictator, EC.   Nor is the government ran like a corporation. You are obviously confused.  They showed two historical photographs of two inagurations taken from the same angle.  The end.  


Watching FOX "News" while on the gym treadmill.  Trump, visiting CIA headquarters today, says news reports of a smaller crowd at his inauguration compared to Obama's are just not right.  He had at least as many, and "some people" say twice as many.

 


It's obvious that the government isn't run like a corporation.  It would have been bankrupt years ago.  Oh...wait....
