WASHINGTON - The Interior Department temporarily suspended its Twitter activity after a bureau of the department - the National Park Service - retweeted a pair of posts Friday that appeared unsympathetic to President Donald Trump.
The first noted that the crowd for Trump was far smaller than the one that turned out for Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009.
The second pointed out that webpages about some issues, including climate change, had been removed from the White House site.
A spokesman for the National Park Service, Tom Crosson, said Saturday the retweets "were inconsistent with the agency's approach to engaging the public."
We regret the mistaken RTs from our account yesterday and look forward to continuing to share the beauty and history of our parks with you pic.twitter.com/mctNNvlrmv— NationalParkService (@NatlParkService) January 21, 2017
