The American ambassador’s Twitter diplomacy

The new American ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro, has a Twitter account. What does he tweet? For example, a message on his visit to a missile battery (in both Hebrew and English).

@AmbShapiro And here is the video of my visit to see the Iron Dome battery near Ashkelon. http://fb.me/HrUHkp4F

What doesn’t he tweet? His own State Department’s condemnation of settlements construction.

(Same goes for the Tel Aviv embassy’s Twitter feed – only this one had seven tweets from the Iron Dome visit.)
