The State Department Spokesperson Just Ignited the Internet With This One Tweet


"Is this real life?"

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki drew controversy Thursday night after she tweeted from her official account that she hoped Russia would "live by the promise of hashtag."

"The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a tweet," according to the official definition from Twitter.

After Psaki's tweet, individuals turned to the social media platform to mock her.

Psaki's comment came just before Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a stern set of remarks on the situation in Ukraine, warning Russia that it would be a "grave mistake" not to comply with the de-escalation agreement brokered last week in Geneva.

There was no indication her account was compromised.
