Major Twitter fail by BA…

November 18th, 2012 11 Comments By Andy Dawson

British Airways might be looking for someone new to man their Twitter feed at weekends, after an almighty cock-up yesterday afternoon when their ususal social media chimp went a bit nuts and retweeted this to their 211,000 followers…

Probably not the kind of carefully-honed message that they’re looking to deliver and an apology was quick in forthcoming once the retweet had been deleted. They’ll probably say they were hacked – that’s how this kind of thing usually happens…

    It’s a bit like blog writers slagging off their readers, eh?

    That is shocking by BA, after the customer tweeted them in such a pleasant manner…

    What’s is wrong with it? Maybe a capital letter and a fullstop is needed, but other than that I cannot spot the problem.

    Get over it Chewbacca you boring, irritating twat. With people like you constantly writing facetious, nonsensical crap about their blog posts I think the BW team show a huge amount of restraint. The occasional blip is understandable when you’re constantly criticised by morons like yourself.
    If you dont like the blog, dont read it.

    9-eyes

    You’re missing the point of this site.

    Also, I don’t recognise your “name”. Are you new here, or just a multi of some other retarded cunt dribble that usually posts on here? In any case, I hope you die of ass cancer. Bye!

    The editors of BW are ‘arseholes’. Sorry………that was just a blip, so its fine, you see.

    Nope, not new here; been following BW for a long time. It’s only fairly recently that helmets like yourself and ‘sameoldshite’ have been infecting what used to be a very amusing stream of comments with drivel and unnecessary criticism of BW’s editors and readers. I think it’s you that is missing the point of the site. Now feel free to crawl back into whatever Glaswegian crack/smack-den you came from and lets all hope it’s your rectum that suffers the unpleasantness of ass cancer.

    It used to be so much better around here when Wonkey Henry was alive.

    @ Chewbacca

    Why do you have to recognise 9-eyes’ name before you take his point? He’s right, you’re wrong. If you hate it here so much, piss off.
