Social media guidance sent to the country’s diplomatic posts stated “that even ‘likes’ are understood as expressions of opinion of the German government” and now mandates the consent of two people.

The ministry said it “publicly made it clear the contents of the tweets concerned are unacceptable, contradict the attitude of the German government, and are not tolerated.”
