Grab the Nexium: Acid reflux abounds after AP shares sponsored tweet

Hey, it’s hard out there for a PC-pimp.

But some AP followers think hustling for the highest OMG Big Pharma bidder!!11! is just too much.

Welcome to GERD City. Better ask your doctor if Nexium® is right for you!

Perhaps these guys missed the ads that run on AP’s official website? “BREAKING” news doesn’t pay for itself, you know.

Others guessed the sponsored tweet was a hacker’s work.

Unlikely. The Associated Press announced earlier this year that it would collect revenue from sponsored tweets.

What do you think? AP spam or a necessary evolution of the dino-media business model?
