Ryanair just can't play nicely
Corporate Twitter accounts are no fun. They're just some poor sap in the office who isn't allowed to be funny and spontaneous without every Tweet going through a committee, leaving business feeds stilted and dead-eyed.
In some instances however, companies allow their social media teams to do stuff on the fly, which seems to be the case at Ryanair and Aer Lingus, who got into it after a customer asked a question.
When Des Foley asked if the two airlines really hated each other, Aer Lingus replied that it was all just a bit of fun. However, Ryaniar constantly have a bee up their arse and replied with the pithy "we'd have to treble our fares and lose 81m customers", singing the "trolololol" song all the while.
They just can't play nicely can they?
