It's spring break season and the U.S. government is concerned about the safety of its young citizens. So instead of a boring old press release, the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is being hip and tweeting out safety tips for overseas travelers. Unfortunately, as Gizmodo pointed out, one of their tweets seriously backfired.

From the sound of it, no one at the State Department has ever conversed with someone with an accent, because otherwise they'd know that being foreign automatically boosts the hotness factor.
