If you participate in the social networking site Twitter, it’s likely that you have come across an account called BPGlobalPR, which has more than 135,000 followers. And if you’re like me, you probably have been thinking, “This account can’t be for real.” I mean, why on earth would BP’s public relations team tweet things like this? Here’s a sample tweet from the account from last week:
ABC News’ Dan Harris (virtually) sat down with the person who runs this satirical account to get to the bottom of the story.
Warning: Some of the language in the video is PG-13 (not awful, but not what I’d want to play for my kids).
So what do you think? What should BP’s real public relations executives do about this satirical account?
