StubHub Apologizes For Obscene Tweet

Calling all social media divas and divos! If you’re going to manage your company’s Twitter account, word to the wise: Keep upset employees (and potential hackers) away from the mouse.

That is, on Friday the StubHub account got more than it bargained for with this tweet: “Thank f*** it’s Friday! Can’t wait to get out of this stubsucking hell hole.”

According to Adweek, someone thought they were posting from their personal account but oops — they were posting from the company’s account instead.

Stubhub ended up deleting the message and then the company tweeted this message:

“We’ve deleted an unauthorized tweet made from this Twitter handle. We apologize to all of our followers for the inappropriate language used.”
