Ha, I got blocked by @Arbys.— Teri Christoph (@TeriChristoph) April 5, 2012
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.
Arby’s has quietly unblocked its critics, but those who were blocked remain unimpressed.
