• State Dept apologizes over travel tip


    WASHINGTON: The US Department of State issued an apology Wednesday after posting a tweet that seemed to proffer travel advice for those whose looks are less than a perfect 10. “Some have been offended by our earlier tweet and we apologize that it came off negatively,” the Bureau of Consular Affairs posted on its Twitter account, after pulling down the offending message. US media posted screenshots of the tweet, part of a campaign warning those headed overseas on Spring Break, a week-long vacation when US university students famously tend to party, how to stay out of trouble while abroad. “Not a ‘10’ in the US? Then not a 10 overseas. Beware of being lured into buying expensive drinks or worse–being robbed” the bureau advised on its @TravelGov account.
