Ukraine needs to find its chill.

The Eastern European nation joined Twitter this morning, instantly achieving verified status. It has tweeted five times as of this writing, and all of those tweets are begging for followers or RTing nice things its cool friends say about it:

Of course, Canada committed this party foul, drawing in other countries and forcing them to acknowledge and follow @Ukraine or else strain diplomatic relations.

As of press time, Great Britain, Australia, Israel, and Sweden (run by Agnes this week) had yet to follow back.

Russia is following Ukraine. Ukraine has not returned the favor.
