U.S. State Department Takes Our #AskJen Twitter Question on Sudan
Over the past several years, social media platforms have become increasingly important tools for governments as a way of disseminating information and engaging with civil society. Earlier today the U.S. State Department hosted a Twitter Q&A to answer important foreign policy questions from civil society and the general public. You can visit State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki’s Twitter profile to check out how the #AskJen Q&A went.
We’re big about social media so we asked an important foreign policy question on Sudan:
. @statedeptspox What is USG doing to secure unfettered aid access to people targeted by govt of Sudan in S. Kordofan? #AskJen
We were excited to see Spokeswoman Psaki respond to our question out of the many she received:
.@OBSilence US continues to press Govt of Sudan to allow immediate, unfettered humanitarian access #Sudan
A followup question we posted seeking a more specific answer went unanswered as the Q&A ended shortly thereafter. We do want to thank the State Department for the response and look forward to engaging further on issues surrounding Sudan, whether they be through online or offline channels.
