Some users suspected that the EPA’s Twitter account had been compromised, though it was not immediately clear if that was the case.

It is also possible the account’s social media manager intended to push the tweet to his or her personal account, but made a mistake in the process and sent it to the wrong account.

Regardless, users on Twitter immediately used the incident to poke fun at the federal agency.

At the time of publication, the tweet had been up for more than one hour.
