Today’s Twitter Ag Fail....

Blaithin's Avatar Oct 14, 2020 | 14:33 1 So frequently there are posts on twitter regarding ag that just make you want to shake your head. I mean.... really people?!

Today’s is this:


Doesn’t give a person much faith in the CGC but maybe their twitter person isn’t a grain person. Or as long as pea is in the name it counts as a pea?

Share any twitter fails you find! Great entertainment, I promise.

    Companies, and governments hire "social media curators" in charge of twitter and facebook accounts... it's actually a career path... but the problem is the people they hire don't know what they are talking about.

    If someone is writing for Detroit and doesn’t know the difference between a straight six or a V eight they should really quit their day job. Reply With Quote

    You can always recognize the screaming jimmy by the Puddle of oil underneath and the deaf people standing around.

    Where as the series 60 will be dryer underneath but the people standing by will have shocked expressions on their faces looking at repair bills. Reply With Quote

    She's a heifer, you don't milk heifers until they foal, then they call them hens when they start producing milk. Reply With Quote

    Not the point.



    Point is the people Manning social media - the business's front to he public - in a lot of cases doesn't understand what they are talking about.

    That can and does cause regular pr and other issues. Reply With Quote
