When a product or service is less than stellar, people often take their complaints to Twitter instead of suffering through an automated call. While many brands respond with a buttoned-up tweet asking you to call their customer-care line, Britain's Tesco Mobile has taken to trolling its trolls in hilarious LOL-speak, snark and thinly veiled insults.
When @JayFeliipe tweeted "Immediate turnoff if a girl's mobile network is tesco mobile," Tesco replied: "Are you really in a position to be turning girls away?" That quip has been retweeted more than 6,000 times, and the company has since sent @JayFeliipe a gift for being so good-natured about getting publicly burned on the Internet.
