Two instances of tweets from U.S. National Park Service accounts that became political hot potatoes in the last few days were the result of bad password management, according to officials.
The first incident took place on inauguration day when the main National Park Service account retweeted images from a CNN reporter that compared unfavorably the crowd size at President Donald Trump’s inauguration with that of President Barack Obama’s in 2009.
When Trump began to openly dispute the images and smaller crowd sizes, the National Park Service deleted the retweet and apologized.
“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,” it said Saturday.
