Several federal agencies began to shutter their websites and social media accounts Tuesday, marking the beginning of the government shutdown. Federal agencies posted one final message on their Twitter accounts to reveal how the shutdown would affect their daily operations, adding that their social accounts would go dark until the shutdown was resolved.
In addition, several federal government websites are closed down as well. Visits to many government websites returned messages saying the sites were not available due to a lapse in federal funding.
Federal agencies also bid farewell, at least temporarily, to their Twitter accounts.
