Brands and Twitter sometimes make strange bedfellows. But when US Airways decides to screw the social media pooch, it doesn't toy around. 

The airline's social media team tweeted to a complaining customer an image of a woman masturbating with a model airplane. What else is there to say?

Well, the tweet fail was up for at least 20 minutes and was sent to an additional customer. Evidently, a US Airways staffer had the lewd picture on his or her clipboard and accidently pasted it into Twitter infamy.

The brand apologized after deleting the messages.
