Let's all say it together: If you have access to a brand's Twitter account, make sure you log out before posting an offensive personal tweet. For the second time in a week, someone who thought they were posting from their personal account let a doozy of a tweet fly from a corporate account—in this case, StubHub's—leading to much red-faced apologizing from the brand. The "Thank fuck it's Friday!" part was bad enough, but at least it was brand neutral. Not so much the "Can't wait to get out of this stubsucking hell hole" part. As punishment, the offending party will be ground up by a KitchenAid and fed to the StubHub tree. Via Gawker.
