The Alaska state Department of Health And Human Services’s official Twitter account featured anti-Trump tweets during the first presidential debate Monday.

Susan Morgan, a agency spokesperson for the agency, explained to Anchorage NBC affiliate KTUU:

Some recent tweets were inadvertently posted to our Twitter account by a DHSS staff member who was accidentally logged into the DHSS account instead of their personal account while on their personal phone at home.

The inadvertent tweets were deleted and we will be reviewing the matter in the days ahead to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Several of the tweets were preserved in a screen capture:

The Twitter account has since posted an official apology.

This report, by Phillip Stucky, was cross-posted by arrangement with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
