Red Cross Recovers From Rogue Tweet

Red Cross Rogue Tweet

Oops! Apparently a Red Cross employee tweeted the above from the official Red Cross account instead of his or her personal one. According to a post at the Red Cross blog, the tweeter was sober and the rogue tweet has been deleted.

“In the meantime we found so many of you to be sympathetic and understanding. While we’re a 130 year old humanitarian organization, we’re also made of up human beings. Thanks for not only getting that but for turning our faux pas into something good.”

While poking fun at Red Cross, some tweeters included links to the donation page.

Nicely handled by Red Cross, and even nicer to see a social-media stumble motivating people to make a donation.

(Thanks for the tip, Mark!)
