The Twitter account of the National Park Service was temporarily suspended after retweeting photos comparing the crowd's at Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009 with Donald Trump's inauguration Friday.

Washington correspondent for The New York Times Binyamin Applebaum tweeted side-by-side photos comparing the crowds, which were noticeably larger for Obama's inauguration.

As shown in the above tweet, the National Park Service account retweeted the tweet, as well as another tweet saying all traces of "climate change" had been scrubbed from the White House website.

Soon after, according to Gizmodo, National Park Service staff members received an email telling them to stop using the Twitter account immediately.

"We have received direction from the Department through [the Washington Support Office] that directs all [Department of Interior] bureaus to immediately cease use of government Twitter accounts until further notice."

The Twitter account was back up and running Saturday, and the National Park Service issued an apology.
