HealthNet Using Fake Tweets as Testimonials on Billboards

@Biz_guy1 isn't as impressed as he appears

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

HealthNet's tagline, "Way to care," should be changed to "Way to not give a damn," following the revelation that the company has been putting fake tweets on its outdoor ads. "Affordable, fits my biz needs — smart health plan! #healthnetcares," @Biz_guy1 purportedly gushed, as reported on the HealthNet billboard above. The only problem is, @Biz_guy1 has never tweeted, follows no one and is followed by no one. If you're going to cheat, at least try to be a little less obvious about it.
