REUTERS PhotoSyrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi said he unfollowed Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu's Twitter account after finding out it was in Turkish, he tweeted on his personal Twitter account today.
"I unfollowed the Turkish account and followed the English account .... What is the big deal," Makdsissi tweeted on the microblogging site.
Hürriyet had reported that Makdissi unfollowed Davutoğlu after following him for a day, linking the incident to souring relations between Turkey and Syria.
Makdissi had underlined earlier that his account was "non-official" and "personal,” suggesting that followers who disagree with his views "simply" unfollow him.
Makdissi tweets in both English and Arabic.
