The post was then deleted by the Twitter admin, but not before some sharp-eyed netizens had captured it.

Presidential Secretariat deputy head of protocol, press and media Bey Triadi Machmudin said in a statement received by The Jakarta Post that the tweet was uploaded by one of the President’s Twitter administrators.

“[The person] has been dismissed,” said Bey, adding that the presidential staff had taken additional internal security and handling measures to avoid such a mistake from happening in the future. (kes)
