Daniel Sinclair @_DanielSinclair Building for young people. Not reading @danielsunread. Lurking behind likes and thinking about social media, communication, & China. Aug. 29, 2019 1 min read

Can a weathered FOIA reporter figure out what's going on with these new social media strategies? It feels like someone in the White House saw the People's Daily troll tweets and decided to make that a directive for the entire cabinet.

Also, this NSA tweet was a coded message directed at a Russian spy during a cyber-weapons recovery operation. I'm not kidding.  https://gizmodo.com/nsa-sent-coded-messages-from-its-official-twitter-accou-1822893380 

The cringe is real too

I preferred when these institutions were elusive, before the social media interns.
