In case you haven’t heard by now, around 11:00 yesterday someone hacked Burger King’s twitter account.Â ChangingÂ their account name to McDonalds as well as their picture icon and bio information. You can read more about it here. Now I am assuming the people at Burger King a FREAKING OUT about this.Â EspeciallyÂ considering there was someÂ vulgarityÂ involved. However, I think you canÂ defiantlyÂ look that this from a positive stand point:
- The first time I heard about it was because a friend of mine retweeted the account and I notice that the account name was McDonalds however it was the @BurgerKing account.Â
- Because of instances like the one I justÂ mentioned last I heard the gainedÂ 30,000 followers.
- McDonalds even game them some sympathy off their twitter account.
- It put Burger King in the back of my mind the rest of the day yesterday
So what’s your stance, do youÂ believeÂ any publicity is good publicity?Â
