A successor to politwoops, diplotwoops.org started today as the modus operandi gets shifted to publishing deleted tweets of internal diplomats, highlighting them instead of local politicians.
In a page that wouldn’t be out of place, though to compare it is a gross exaggeration, to the 2013 movie “The Fifth Estate” where 2 web-savvy young men (driven by ego, mostly) go about exposing the world’s secrets ending with the “one finger pointed and three point back” thought train of accusation turning the guys’ lives into an utter catastrophe for them as well as the world, along comes the real-deal Diplotwoops.
The Open State Foundation behind Diplotwoops has different websites, as well as a worldwide roundup one, in places like the Netherlands, the U.K., and the United States.
What is left on the “cutting room floor” of Tweetsville, that Diplotwoops will swoop up, is indeed allowable by society by way of the undeniable fact that transparency is one of the five mainstays of Truth. Thus, exposing the misfires of international diplomatic communications becomes fair game.
Another expression applicable to Diplotwoops is that all is fair in love and war.
