The US ambassador to Israel’s Twitter name was changed to say he is also ambassador to the West Bank and Gaza on Wednesday, before it was quickly changed back.

On midday Wednesday, David Friedman stopped being ambassador to the US, and the US ambassador to Israel Twitter account no longer bore his name; it was replaced with “US Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.”

The name changed sparked speculation on social media that the Biden administration had forced the change, though the title had not been changed on the embassy website.

Soon after, the Twitter account was changed back to “US Ambassador to Israel.”
