May I present the worst tweets I have seen this month. These three come from the Travel Security Agency’s blog team. The team represents the agency that is supposed to be protecting the American public from the threat of terrorism in the airlines.
I can’t believe a social media team that should be focused on explaining travel procedures and security resorted to making lame Thanksgiving jokes on the busiest day of travel the during a time when they are under extreme scrutiny by the American public.
Thanksgiving may be over, but the holiday travel rush is just getting started. Instead of using social media to gauge what people are saying and engaging them on how it’s necessary, TSA is using its Twitter account and blog to explain how and why they delete comments from their blog.
It’s no wonder why some American’s can’t take security seriously. I’m all for having fun on social networks, but that’s for individuals, not government agencies. If the TSA can’t treat their social media communication seriously, why should we take anything else they do seriously?
