Interior Department staffers were ordered to stop using Twitter last week. The order came in after one worker posted something that Trump didn't like - a word about the attendance to his inaugural attendance, which, according to his version (not to his alternative facts - there's no such thing, fyi), the attendance was the biggest ever. The worker also tweeted about how after Trump's inauguration the climate change and civil rights pages disappeared from the official White House website.

Now government emploees from NASA, National Park Service as well as Environmental Protection Agency have created 'unofficial twitter accounts' under the names @RogueNASA, @AltNatParkSer, @ungaggedEPA, to speak out agains Trump's media blackout.

"How sad is it that government employees have to create rogue Twitter accounts just to communicate FACTS to the American public?" @RogueNASA tweeted.

The rogue accounts were created due to fear of getting fired for peaking out and sharing facts. The problem is that if Trump's 'alternative facts' don't fit the facts, then the facts are wrong. Based on experience, and Trump's own words.
