Top Twitter #Fails from Brands in a Twitter Stream Infographic

Here’s an original fresh infographic of top Twitter #fails from consumer brands that we put together yesterday for a course on reputation management in social media.

Our point was simple; there’s reputational risk in using social media for so-called ‘brand engagement’ (aka social spam); it’s far safer – and smarter – to use social technology to offer useful services to people, including making it easier to buy.

Social-as-Service beats Social-as-SPAM every time.

Enjoy and share.

    Explain how the American Rifleman post was an epic fail.

      Unfortunately, the American Rifleman tweet was an auto-tweet that was sent out shortly after the Aurora theater shooting.
