U.S. embassy Armenia’s Twitter page temporarily forced to stand idle

PanARMENIAN.Net - The U.S. embassy in Armenia won’t be updating its Twitter page as a result of a lapse in Congressional appropriations, the embassy said in a tweet on Monday, January 22.

“At this time, scheduled passport & visa services will continue during lapse in Congressional appropriations as the situation permits,” the tweet reads.

“Our Twitter account won't be regularly updated until full US Government operations resume w/exception of emergency safety & security information.”

The U.S. government has started to shut down after Congress failed to overcome a bitter standoff over spending and immigration.

Last-minute negotiations crumbled as Senate Democrats blocked a four-week stopgap extension in a late-night vote, causing the fourth government shutdown in a quarter of a century.
