Some Brands Are Really Bad At Twitter … This Account Retweets The Worst
If you like watching some of the world’s biggest brands being downright dumb, goofy, bad and silly on Twitter, have we got an account for you to follow.
It’s called “Your Tweets Are Bad,” and you can find it at @urtweetsrbad. It exists for one reason and one reason only: to highlight lame tweets from recognizable brands.

Besides having a cold, the worst part about having a cold is that you can’t smell your fresh sheets. #flufact

And it goes on. And on. And on.
Digiday ran a short Q&A with the anonymous owner of @urtweetsrbad — it’s someone that’s been in the marketing industry for about five years and currently works in social media and started the account just for fun.
His/Her goal with the account? To “inspire some social media managers or agency creatives to be just a little less lazy. Or make people laugh, sigh or roll their eyes.”
So far, so good, I’d say.
