On Friday, National Weather Services meteorologist Paul Bresson made headlines when he tweeted that his colleagues had called him a “stupid idiot” for tweeting a link to the weather service’s website.
The tweet came after the National Weather Forum tweeted a link for a video by the National Institute of Standards and Technology on climate change.
Bressons tweet quickly went viral, with his tweet earning him a spot on the list of the top 10 most shared on Twitter, with almost 10,000 retweets and nearly 1,500 likes.
But that wasn’t the only incident of political infighting at NWS.
On Friday night, the Weather Service tweeted a screenshot of the Twitter account of a political blogger, the National Review, that included a link that included information about how the Weather Channel has changed.
It is unclear if the NWS received any warning or reprimand from Twitter about the tweet.
Busson was not directly involved in the post, which the Weather Services said “violated NWS policy.”
It’s not clear how many times the NFS has used Twitter in the past, but it was one of many instances where political content was removed, said Jennifer Henningsen, the NSPH.
The agency has a “zero tolerance” policy on political language, she said.
The NSP has also banned posts on its official Facebook page that include links to third-party websites that use the Weather Network’s logo.
In recent years, the agency has tried to distance itself from some of the more controversial political posts that have appeared on the Weather website.
In May, the weather agency released a video featuring climate scientist James Hansen, which was shot on a NASA satellite in Antarctica.
“The video shows the dramatic impact of climate change on the continent,” the video said.
In February, the president of the National Academy of Sciences, John Holdren, said the climate change debate is a “serious and urgent matter” that is “one of the most pressing challenges we face.”
Henniesen said the Weather service has “a clear message” for its users: Do not use any content from outside sources to disseminate weather information.
“If it’s on social media, it’s not going to get shared,” she said, adding that “you need to make sure that when you do share it, it stays on social.”
Henson said that it is common for the Weather Department to have discussions on Twitter about whether to share data or video, such as weather forecasts or climate change research.
In March, the government of the United Kingdom banned the Weather Agency from using Twitter to spread news about climate change because of concerns about potential abuse.
It was the latest in a series of moves that the agency took to curb social media abuse, which has exploded in recent years.
In April, the FBI launched an investigation into whether a climate change activist group was using Twitter for political purposes.
The investigation into Twitter and other social media platforms was prompted by an investigation of an online forum for climate change activists, which had posted a number of “false or misleading” claims, including that the group was targeting the Weather, according to a Justice Department news release.
The Weather Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday.
The news about the Weather’s tweet comes just weeks after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the federal agency that runs the Weather and Climate service, took down a Facebook page created by a climate activist group, after the website was linked to the Weather Research Foundation, which bills itself as a nonpartisan research organization.
The website, which calls itself “the world’s leading climate research organization,” was removed from the Weather Twitter feed.
The Justice Department said the website had been created by “a climate change advocacy group that uses the Weather to promote its agenda.”
The website was later restored.
