US Embassy blunders in Twitter

ICC Cricket World Cup 2015

Kathmandu – United States Embassy based in Kabul, Afghanistan made a blunder in social media writing about Afghanistan win against Bangladesh during the match at Manuka Oval, Canberra on Wednesday.

The US embassy congratulated the side on their victory just half-way through the Bangladesh Innings. However after 48 minutes, they posted a new tweet citing premature posting and cheered for the team Afghanistan.

The tweet triggered a flood of sarcastic retorts about Americans in Kabul prematurely declaring victory, as well as an apologetic response from the embassy.

With the match barely a quarter of the way through, the US embassy’s official Twitter account posted a message hailing Afghanistan’s “victory”.
