According to an email obtained by the Washington Post, “all bureaus and the department [Of The Interior] have been directed by incoming administration to shut down Twitter platforms immediately until further notice“.   The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation also experienced “Twitter Blackouts”.

This comes after the Twitter account for the National Park Service criticized Trump’s policies and statements on Twitter.
