Secret Service Apologizes For Bashing Fox News On Twitter

Illustration for article titled Secret Service Apologizes For Bashing Fox News On Twitter

Two things we learned today: 1. The Secret Service has a Twitter account, because sometimes while you're stealthily protecting the president, it's fun to let the world know what's on your mind. 2. It's snarkier than you might expect. This week the Secret Service apologized for Tweeting, "Had to monitor Fox for a story. Can't. Deal. With. The. Blathering." The Tweet was quickly removed and this statement was issued:

"An employee with access to the Secret Service's Twitter account, who mistakenly believed they were on their personal account, posted an unapproved and inappropriate tweet. We apologize for this mistake, and the user no longer has access to our official account. Policies and practices which would have prevented this were not followed and will be reinforced for all account users."

Aww, go easy on the guy. He's willing risk his life and his sanity to protect the president.

For the life of me I can't figure out why the Secret Service would need a Twitter account in the first place.
