The Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a foreign policy think-tank based in Washington, tweeted 'suck it' to Amnesty International, in response to a tweet by the human rights organisation on violence in Ferguson.

Amnesty International tweeted, '"US can’t tell other countries to improve their records on policing and peaceful assembly if it won’t clean up its own human rights record".

The reply from CSIS handle said, 'Your work has saved far fewer lives than American inventions. So. Suck it.' Oops!

The tweet was deleted in no time by CSIS. Soon an apology and justification appeared, CSIS blamed an intern for tweeting 'suck it'.
