A child unintentionally created tensions by posting a tweet in the official account of US Strategic Command.
The official account of the agency that’s responsible for US’ nuclear weapons posted a bunch of letters and punctuation marks on Twitter which was deleted minutes after. It had over 6,600 shares and 8,500 likes before it was deleted.
Journalist Mikael Thalen wrote to the agency, asking for an explanation. US Strategic Command answered the journalist: “The Command’s Twitter manager, while in a telework status, momentarily left the Command’s Twitter account open and unattended. His very young child took advantage of the situation and started playing with the keys and unfortunately, and unknowingly, posted the tweet.”
Stratcom admitted they had fallen victim to a toddler with a telephone.
Forced to juggle work and child-care, one of their officials had let his precious work phone fall into his child’s hands.
