The Interior Department has suspended its Twitter activity.
This, after a bureau of the department — the National Park Service — retweeted a pair of posts Friday that appeared unsympathetic to President Donald Trump.
The first noted that the crowd for Trump was far smaller than the one that turned out for Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009.

Matt Damon took the cause of clean water to the Sundance Film Festival, where he said he's hoping to pitch Donald Trump on the issue.

Demonstrations turned violent in the nation's capital as protesters clashed with police, damaged vehicles, destroyed property and set small fires in a chaotic confrontation blocks from Donald Trump's inauguration Friday. At least 217 people have been arrested.
Police clad in riot gear faced off against hundreds of demonstrators downtown near 12th and K streets, about six blocks from where Trump would soon hold his inaugural parade, Metropolitan Police said.
Police charged with batons, pepper spray and concussion grenades to disperse crowds. MPD Interim Police Chief Peter Newsham denied claims his agency used tear gas on demonstrators, telling NBC Washington, "We have not deployed tear gas."
Four people were killed, roofs were ripped from homes and churches, and trees were torn from the earth early Saturday when a tornado hitting in the dark of night ripped through a region in southern Mississippi, officials said.
Four people died after the twister blew through the city and surrounding area, said Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict. The twister was part of a wall of stormy weather traveling across the region, bringing with it rain and unstable conditions.
Authorities have not yet released the names of the four people who died. But at least one family had already gotten the horrific news. Monica McCarty said her father died in the same trailer park where she and her boyfriend live and her son was apparently crushed to death while in bed at her mother's house where he lived.

Many of the pages on the White House's website were taken down Friday, shortly after Donald Trump's inauguration as president, including pages on LGBTQ rights, climate change and the Affordable Care Act. However, those pages are still accessible online. Anything that was at WhiteHouse.gov under the Obama administration has been moved to ObamaWhiteHouse.gov. The plan to do so was announced earlier in the week. Everything on the archived version of the Obama White House page is marked as "historical material" that's "frozen in time."

As soon as Donald Trump had delivered his inauguration address, the critique began.
His speech offered few lines to bring together a deeply divided country, many lines of criticism for the politicians gathered around him on the steps of the Capitol, a reference to American nativism in World War II and a dark vision of America of mother and children in poverty, and crime, gangs and drugs devastating the country, pundits noted.
"Today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People," Trump said, later tweeting the sentence.
