Social Media Mistake: UN Mistakenly Tweets Need for ’1-State Solution’ in Middle East
As the United Nations General Assembly votes on a resolution to change the status of the Palestinian delegation from “observer” to “non-member observer state,” the UN’s social media team made an unfortunate typo.
The United Nation’s official Twitter, @UN tweeted “On Day of Solidarity with Palestinians, Ban Ki-moon stresses urgency of reaching 1-state solution” at 2 p.m. EST. The tweet should have called for a two-state solution. Though the tweet has, not surprisingly, been deleted, it was online long enough to be retweeted several times and for @danming to screenshot and Instagram the tweet.
