What a little hashtag can do

Obama administration foreign policy long ago passed the stage of self-parody. Yet it has written a new chapter in self-parody as State Department spokesman Jen Psaki engaged last week in “hashtag diplomacy” on Twitter to counter Russian aggression in Ukraine. ABC News picks up the story in “#That’sCold! Russians, US in hashtag battle.” Long story short: the Obama administration has opened up another front in which it is losing to Russia.

But that’s not all. Twitchy has collected the contributions of those who have been inspired to offer creative titles for the book Ms. Psaki must write (the sooner the better) to elucidate the deep diplomatic thoughts underlying her efforts on Twitter. “‘The Art of Hashtag War’: Citizens generously help title #JenPsakiBooks.”
