Embassy statement on the false tweet posted this morning

On March 11, 2019, a short and vague message was posted on the Twitter account of the US Embassy in Argentina.  The message appeared to refer to a prominent individual and Argentine domestic political matters.

Anyone who follows the Embassy’s social media channels, which are used exclusively to celebrate the long and strong friendship between the United States and Argentina, would have recognized right away that the message is false.

We removed the Tweet immediately and emphatically disavow its contents.  We will investigate this incident thoroughly and reinforce our social media account security measures.
