Oh Guardian….Big #Fail on your 9/11 Twitter Experiment Reply

My first tweet of today was:

Oh Guardian…big #fail RT @heatherAtaylor: Guardian’s 9/11 mistake shows we’re still learning boundaries w Twitter http://t.co/kQTJecY #fb

Clicking on the link in the tweet: http://t.co/kQTJecY you’ll see that TheNextWeb has done a good job of summarising the Guardian’s big Twitter fail.

Marking September 11th, 2010 by establishing a Twitter handle called @911tenyearsago and tweeting out events such as “Flight 11 crashes into North tower of World Trade Center between floors 93 and 99″…..well, unsurprisingly it didn’t go down well with followers.
