Standardize embassy and bureau social media

I've noticed that several embassies have social media presences but that their info is not aggregated into one place on State's web site. Why not sort and list it in an easy-to-view place based upon region/bureau to make it easier for the public to interact with DoS? Also, there should be a standard naming scheme in saying Twitter feeds such as usembassy_paraguay, instead of the embassy in Paraguay currently being called laembajada (the embassy), precluding its use elsewhere in the region.


I'm a social media whiz and have a Masters from Georgetown School of Foreign Service; let me know if there is an opening to work on this for DoS.
