There’s this, now, from yesterday:
Representative Vicky Hartzler’s (r) constituents noticed:
Just Janet @JanetMoses17
Good grief, what 1st grader is running your twitter account?

And a few people (including us) saved the original Tweet before it was deleted.
Replying to @RepHartzler
So you realized your original number was a tiny bit off…. bu 198,000.

Bad form Representative Hartzler (r), bad form. You or someone in your office acting on your behalf cited an erroneous number on a social media post. The original inaccurate Tweet was deleted without acknowledgement (at least on Twitter) and replaced by something else.
When you make a mistake like that, take your lumps, make your correction(s) public, maybe apologize for the error. People will understand if it’s not part of a pattern.
Of course, you’ll never take any advice from Show Me Progress. We’re good with that.
