Rogue NASA Twitter account strikes back at Donald Trump

After personally pressuring Park Service, Trump faces new questions
President Trump's orders restricting the scientists and the governmental organisations from sharing information with the public on social media regarding issues like climate change has prompted a digital rebellion against him on Twitter, wherein the scientists are setting up "rogue" or "resistance accounts" borrowing the names and logos of the governmental agencies to voice their concern.
As part of a growing trend, NASA employees created today a network of unofficial accounts on the Twitter platform as a form of resistance to President Donald Trump. Apart from NASA, other agencies that have formed the "resistance accounts' include EPA, FDA, USDA and US Forest Service among others".
Last week, Interior Department staff were told to stop posting on Twitter after an employee-retracted messages on the official White House website about the relatively low attendance at Trump's takeover, and how the material on climate change and civil rights waste disappeared.
@AltNatParkSer appeared shortly after the Badlands National Park's official account posted several unauthorized, but highly popular, tweets affirming climate change.
Media reports have suggested that the Trump administration sought to limit how certain government agencies - including the EPA - communicate with the public. Many accounts are tweeting facts about carbon emissions and climate change, using #Climate and #Resist.
Here's a collection of rogue scientific government agency Twitter accounts that have popped up this week.
In response, these agencies have set up alternative Twitter accounts to fight back against Trump's attempt at silencing their agencies.
They also state that while the Trump administration may be able to limit their discourse with the public on official National Park Service Twitter accounts, Donald Trump can not stop National Park Service employees from setting up other Twitter accounts and speaking to the public in their spare time.
Scientists at the Environmental Protection Agency were the first to do so, launching an account after the body was told to tone down the information it releases to the public about climate change.
Unknown employees at the National Weather Services created the Twitter account @AlternativeNWS and posted "Hi there @POTUS, hope you're enjoying your pointless deletion of science". The group said they intend to take "a stand for science in politics". "They're taking that as an attack on their work".
The phenomenon was not limited to USA environmental and natural resource employees. Twitter's reaction has been more than resistant.

Unlike some owners, he doesn't work out of the team facility on a daily basis, so team officials don't expect a hard transition. The team has had a winning season just once in the past six years, and their 2016 record ended with five wins and 11 losses.
