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.
