  1. Loud and clear! My guess is that their social media “guru” is young and does not understand what you were trying to say. Also note – HOOTSUITE. Was this an automated response?! YIKES!

    1. Hi Jennifer. I agree that they probably didn’t know what I was trying to say, although I did include a screenshot of the tweet in question. As for the HootSuite icon, that’s just there because I have a HootSuite account. It will appear on any tweets I am viewing from the Twitter desktop. 🙂

      1. Well there you go… Talk about not paying attention! When I first looked at the image I thought that @Frappuccino was using an automated response through Hootsuite, not you! It is definitely imperative to pay close attention!

        Do you think this might just be a marketing ploy to get consumers to do exactly what you did? Maybe they want you to think you follow them so you make the extra effort to search though your account and get connected with them! Hmmm…
