Announcing the move in both English and Spanish, @lacasablanca suggested that Twitter users look to the English-language @WhiteHouse account instead. Meanwhile, the White House Twitter account has yet to Tweet in Spanish.

Debido a que el Congreso falló en financiar el Gobierno, esta cuenta estará inactiva. Mientras tanto sigue @whitehouse. #Shutdown
