    Someone in Secret Service mistakes official Twitter account for personal account and tweets, "Had to monitor Fox for a story. Can't. Deal. With. The. Blathering"

    The Secret Service has only been on Twitter for 10 days, and it looks like the Service is still trying to work out the kinks.
    A Tweet went out on the Secret Service's official, verified accountWednesday that read: "Had to monitor Fox for a story. Can't. Deal. With. The. Blathering."

    That was quite a departure from the typical Tweets from the service, such as, "Meet our Secret Service recruiters at events throughout the U.S. Visit United States Secret Service | Join Our Team! to learn more."
    The Tweet was quickly deleted, but before it came down it wasretweeted by some of the Service's 18,000-plus followers, some of whom also took screengrabs.
    In a statement released to CBS News, Edwin M. Donovan, Special Agent in Charge at the Secret Service Office of Government and Public Affairs, said the tweet was the result of someone not understanding that the account was public.
    "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," said Donovan.

    I can't believe these idiots are infiltrating our law enforcement networks. Scary.

    Oops. Wonder how the agent felt when he realized what he did?

    I bet that was an intern, or civilian PR.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.
