Dear Mikael Thalen,

This is in response to your 29 March 2021 FOIA request for records pertaining “Any electronic
correspondence(emails, messages), internal memos, or reports on the now-deleted tweet made
bythe official US Strategic CommandTwitter account (@US_Stratcom) on March 28, 2021 with
the text ";l;;gmlxzssaw.” I engaged with the Deputy Public Affairs Officer and there are no
written recordsrelated to your request. The explanation of this tweetis as follows: The
Command’s Twitter manager, while in a telework status, momentarily left the Command’s
Twitter account open and unattended. His very young child took advantageofthe situation and
started playing with the keys and unfortunately, and unknowingly, posted the tweet. Absolutely
nothing nefarious occurred,i.e., no hacking of our Twitter account. The post was discovered and
notice to delete it occurred telephonically.

If you are notsatisfied with this no records response, you may appealto the appellate authority,
Ms. Joo Chung, Director of Oversight and Compliance, Office of the Secretary of Defense. The
appellate address is: ODCMO,Director of Oversight and Compliance, 4800 Mark Center Drive
