TLP: Oh. My. Gawd. Secret Service Now Recruits Valley Girls
To be fair, the Secret Service has only been tweeting for 10 days. So maybe we can write this off as a newbie fuck-up. Still, WTF?
The Secret Service is apologizing Wednesday after an employee's personal dislike for Fox News landed in an official tweet.Beyond the bias (and I don't give a shit whether it was Fox, MSNBC or Comedy Central) let's hope there was at least some irony in the language. Like the cool kids do it. Otherwise, all I can say is: Trying. Too. Hard.
The message, posted Wednesday on the @SecretService Twitter account read, "Had to monitor Fox for a story. Can't. Deal. With. The. Blathering."
According to the agency, the tweet was "immediately removed" and an "internal follow-up" is underway.
Also, @SecretService, you really ought to follow someone. You know, maybe @johnwilkesbooth or @leeharvey63 would have been good, for starters.
JDA can offer pointers. She's a helpful sort. Just ask the Fed.
