Red Cross Tweets About Beer

The American Red Cross has their Twitter uh-oh moment:

Ryan found two more 4 bottle packs of Dogfish Head’s midas Touch beer…. when we drink we do it right $gettngslizzerd

That rogue tweet, from a staffer who inadvertently used the wrong account in Hootsuite, won’t be fired and they’ve apologized for the mistake by deleting the tweet and stating they’re sober and they’ve confiscated the keys. At least they have a sense of humor about it.

Interestingly, early reports indicate it may have caused a slight surge in the amount of blood and money donated to the Red Cross.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
