As if Monday mornings weren’t fun enough, AP Boston decided to spice things up via Twitter.
Right before lunch time, their account sent out this lovely perplexing barrage of characters you see above to their near 15,000 followers. It quickly racked up over 100 retweets and 50 favorites before the company recognized their blunder and deleted the tweet. But not before a crafty Internet user snagged a screenshot. We’re not really anticipating a retraction regarding the matter, but we’re curious to know if there’s a passcode on the phone running the account (and, are they using a BlackBerry?)
A half-hour ago, AP tweeted out a response:
Apologies for the garble in a recent tweet, which was the result of a technical issue. We’ve deleted the tweet.— AP Boston (@AP_Boston) January 13, 2014
At least one user seemed relieved.
.@AP_Boston We were all concerned it was a sure sign that the robot uprising was about to begin. You -will- let us know when that happens..?— Dan K (@teeheehee) January 13, 2014
