Mohamad’s tweet was retweeted by the University of Houston chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine.  Haley, however, did not back down.

In response, she tweeted:

The back and forth between Haley and the UH Student eventually prompted other twitter users to join the debate. Some questioned why she walked out of the security council meeting in the first place. Haley stated in her defense that she did not walk out in disrespect, but walked out because there were other meetings she had to attend to.

A recent article on Politico asserts Haley’s use of Twitter has already raised questions concerning protocol.

Could this encounter with a college student add to that scrutiny?
