They're lucky Wendy's didn't hop on that scrum.

One of my favorite side-jokes to the response was the one that asked if the ice cream machine was working.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS, the one time I decide I want ice cream or a shake is the day it's being cleaned or its broken.

But in general, I like that the pee-ons that run those accounts came together. It's touching.

Second-Life's response was especially meta.

And before you go off on me...I meant how they're treated in their world by their bosses or whatever. Not how I think of them.

I don't care if your job is sweeping sidewalks, I value your contribution to society inversely proportional to that of paper-pusher CEOs and stock-owning billionaires.

Well, FWIW, it's not the correct spelling of the word peon, so it seemed obvious to me that's what you meant.

The original term is Greek, and referred to footsoldiers and other generally lowly people. It's related in origin to the term 'pawn.' Those wacky Greeks and their suffocating caste bullshiat.

That said, I remember watching an obscure kid's show where it was spelled like that on said peon's uniforms. The Odyssey. Had baby Ryan Reynolds in it. Like a weird sort of Lord of the Flies riff.

Fascinating and relevant, I know.

Broken = someone lost a part when they cleaned it and they're waiting for a replacement

McDonald's on Twitter does have a hefty amount of followers-3.6 million, in fact.

Who the fark would actually want to follow McDonald's on Twitter? Are we really that pathetic?

Free giveaways that require you to be a follower, probably.

Seems like this was a poorly blatant troll to try and be as clever and popular as Wendy's people.

(it's a team, not one person, did a project for Limited Brands and they had a room full of people who did their social media accounts, like 50+)

My favourite story about a brand Twitter account was the New Zealand bank who invited a customer to 'Netflix and chill' apparently without realising this was a sex metaphor.

In the inevitable Fark thread, several Farkers thought this sounded great as their banks went in dry and/or non-consensually.

What does the MOD squad have to do with brands' socmed managers?

Even if it is, it looks sweet and kind in opposition to the horrible political news that seems to be hitting hourly and getting more and more ugly.  This story at least made me smile and not want to bang my head into a wall and choke myself to death with my own tentacles.
I still won't eat at McDonald's.

Just wait until he gets a reply from a porn streaming site!

This whole exchange just smacks of corporate/consumerism entertainment worship.  Oh, a bunch of friendly familiar corporate names showing their vulnerable caring side.  Hah!

I've gotten way too jaded.

Wendy's Twitter is brutal, I love it. All the other fast food accounts reek of lame " How do you do, fellow kids?" and they can go to hell.

I forgot Nihilist Arby's, another good one.

You might get special offers.

At a previous job, our marketing agency did social media monitoring. And because our office was in central Europe, they wanted us to monitor the entire region and most of the major european languages. Our sales people would lie and say, "Sure we have some native Finnish speakers" or Hungarian or whatever.

So they would rope in people doing completely unrelated jobs to open some monitoring software 2x a day and read the comments in their native language. If something noteworthy was was mentioned, email it to the marketing manager who will respond.

My absolute favorite was the male, Greek, Java developer who had to monitor the equivalent of Nair hair removal cream. Every Monday, he had to look at comments of drunk dudes on a Saturday night trolling the account or asking if they could use it on their balls. This was his Monday-morning-over-coffee task. And remember, Greek people tend to be hairy, so this was a pretty popular product. This wasn't just 3 comments.

// He got some kind of small bonus for this since it was unrelated to his work
