Twitter FAIL

Here’s a slightly hilarious sort of depressing list of FAIL from Aflac, BP, Chrysler, Godaddy, Qantas, and Kenneth Cole, all via twitter. BP is the worst.

Got this from Social Media Chimps.

    this is more an example of people being over sensitive to humor….

    • yeah but come on. BP? They already looked like idiots.

        Yea they did already look like huge idiots but I think it would have looked worse if they took the time to acknowledge that a fake twitter account was a fake twitter account. Also I find it funny that whoever wrote this article put quotes around the word funnyman as if to say what Gilbert Gottfried tweeted was not fucking hilarious.

    Not to sound like too much of a nerd, but…the library has a book titled “Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age.” I haven’t read it, but the publisher’s description says, ” The ability to forget, or be forgotten, has played an important part in human society, allowing for changed minds, second chances & overlooked embarrassments. Digital technology, with its inexhaustible memory, threatens one of the most important social conventions: the past is past. This book explores the issues.” Journalists know the importance of checking their facts and proof-reading.

    The first one’s not really a “fail” by Aflac. They didn’t tweet that stuff. They just had to react to it.
