The Israeli Embassy Dropped a "Mean Girls" Tweet on Iran. It's Awesome.
No, the tweet wasn't "so fetch." We're dealing with a very volatile part of the world (see Iranian Group Offers $100,000 to Blow Up Jerusalem Embassy and VIDEO: Iranian MPs Burn American Flag, Chant ‘Death to America’). So, please. Let's all be professional. That said, any time a Mean Girls tweet is used as part of international diplomacy, it's a good day to be alive.
Not so much diplomacy. More like being the Ayatollah of OWNING your ass.

Sometimes, the interns running social media have a good zinger.
Look it, this is funny only because we're dealing with dictators talking smack on a social media platform called "Twitter." Issuing statements via "tweets." It's fine and dandy to drop a Mean Girls gif when the situation warrants it. I'm just glad we saw it.
Another thing, Iran is out there making a ruckus about obliterating Israel. Harsh words which are most likely being pecked from a Blackberry. But in a global, thermal nuclear skirmish, who do you think will come out with the high score? Iran or Israel? Methinks Israel knows who's getting the better over/under odds should ca-ca hit the turbine. Heck, tweets alone, Israel is winning. I'm not saying better tweets scales to a better warrior, but maybe I am saying that. Would I be wrong?
Game respects game, Israel. You keep doing you, boo.
