Turkey summons US diplomat over a Twitter ’like’

Turkey summoned a top US diplomat on Sunday, a day after the US Embassy’s Twitter account liked a tweet regarding Devlet Bahceli, the leader of the nationalist party. The tweet said Turkey should be ready for a political realm without Bahceli, who has had health issues in recent weeks. Bahceli is the leader of Nationalist Movement Party, which is an ally of President Tayyip Erdogan’s AK Party.

There is a reason federal employees are supposed to remain officially apolitical.... because everyone is one 'like' away from getting butt hurt.

Erdogan is just pissy because ISIS made an Islamic Caliphate before he did.

I don't think that there is any neutrality left in the world. Tribalism is king.

All of this because of a blue thumb icon on a digital page... Jesus Christ

Sounds like a diplomat who doesn't understand what neutrality is.
