Cast Your Vote! Zoomph’s Top Twitter Fails of 2014

Oops! They Tweeted What?!

The New Year is almost upon us. And with that, comes a bazillion different countdowns, top tens and of course, DJ Earworm’s much-anticipated #UnitedStatesofPop ‘Do What You Wanna Do’ 2014 Mashup.

We take these countdowns seriously. Especially when talking about Social Media (that’s kinda what we do for a living…). This year, we want to explore the BIGGEST Twitter Fails. We have selected the TOP 4 nominees and we want you to cast your vote. All you have to do is Tweet @Zoomph with who you think made the biggest  ‘oops’. The Zoompher with the most VOTES  will win a great prize. Afterall, ’tis the season of giving. Scroll down to find out WHAT you’ll win 🙂

And, the Nominees Are: 

1. DiGiorno’s #WhyIStayed Tweet:

DiGiorno used a trending topic on Twitter to make a joke about pizza. Unfortunately, the hashtag was in regard to domestic violence in lieu of the Ray Rice scandal. DiGiorno eventually acknowledged their mistake and deleted the Tweet. The moral of the story? Research trending topics prior to tweeting!

2. Ann Coulter Mocks #BringBackOurGirls: 

Ann Coulter received major backlash after using the Nigerian #BringBackOurGirls. Coulter tweeted “My hashtag contribution to world affairs” with an image of herself holding a sign with her own hashtag.” #BringBackOurGirls was used to encourage the release of girls being held by the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram. Supporters of the hashtag replaced the text on Coulter’s paper with their own phrases to describe their views of her Tweet.

3. US Airways Explicit Tweet: 

The airline tweeted out an explicit photo from their official Twitter feed in response to a customer service request. The photo remained online for over an hour before it was removed. The moral of the story? Monitor your social media closely; one of the biggest mistakes was that this Tweet was visible for more than an hour.

4. Entenmann’s #NotGuilty Tweet: 

Baked goods company, Entenmann’s, faced backlash after using #notguilty in a tweet without realizing it referred to the Casey Anthony trial. Moral of the story? Don’t force your brand into every conversation, especially when that conversation is a touchy subject.
