Well it appears the fake BP Twitter phenomenon has inspired a fake AT&T PR Twitter feed. Because I watch competitors closely, I spotted this one shortly after it started. Among my favorite fake tweets so far:
- Breaking: Sprint announces EVO 4G promotion for sweaty left-handed people. #attwireless #shameless
- It’s a feature! No call should be longer than 3 mins. RT @jeremybrooks: 1st call w/ iPhone4 lasted 3 minutes before AT&T dropped it #att
- Dude. Totally on it. xo RT @chrismessina: AT&T 2 turn 2 social media 2 lift its image. Just hire @BPGlobalPR. http://bit.ly/ahlHqf
But don’t expect this parody account to take off like the BP one. Remember, we’re talking about a cell phone company, not a company whose negligence has devastated an eco-system and put tens of thousands of people out of work.
Plus, the Fake AT&T guy isn’t as funny as BP, or for that matter, the fake Steve Jobs.
