(RNN) - A day after the National Park Service retweeted some unflattering posts about President Donald Trump, The Washington Post reports the Department of the Interior has been banned from tweeting by the new administration.

The posts in questions were sent out by the official Twitter account for the National Park Service and were related to a picture comparing the inauguration attendance between Trump and former President Barack Obama.

The second post was related to the Trump White House website not including several policy issues it had featured under Obama.

Both topics were widely circulated throughout social media. Neither was generated by the NPS account, and both were retweets.

The posts have since been removed and an apology was posted Saturday that reads, "we regret the mistaken RTs from our account yesterday and look forward to continuing to share the beauty and history of our parks with you."

The Post reported late Friday that an email from the Trump administration was sent to the Department of the Interior, which oversees the National Park Service, to shut down all of its Twitter accounts until further notice.

Twitter has been a big part of Trump's campaign and even featured in his inauguration day festivities. His official account tweeted several quotes from his inauguration address, and at an inaugural ball Friday night Trump asked the crowd if he should keep the account going to raucous approval.
