Arby’s resorts to blocking conservatives on Twitter; update: critics unblocked

You may recall that yesterday, Arby’s announced via Twitter that it would no longer advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s show. (Limbaugh notes that Arby’s has never been a sponsor of his show. As we note here, Arby’s president is a Democrat donor.)

Conservatives were not at all happy with Arby’s actions – and they got very vocal about it.

Well, as it turns out, Arby’s has begun blocking conservatives who have tweeted complaints.

Arby’s had one foot in it yesterday … we guess they decided they needed to step in it with the other foot to even things out.

Has a company Twitter account ever blocked its customers for complaining before? Is this … unprecedented? In any event, Arby’s, we’re thinkin’ you really screwed up.

UPDATE:

Arby’s has quietly unblocked its critics, but those who were blocked remain unimpressed.
