Big companies don’t half get some stick from time to time. Every now and then though, they provide us with a good laugh on Twitter. Here are 12 times when they totally owned people who tweeted them rude things
When TFL Overground gave motherly advice
And don’t forget to have a wash and brush your teeth before you leave. Make sure you’re wearing clean pants too. You never know when a train might knock you down.
When Tesco dissed their rivals
Good work Tesco (but Sainsburys Taste The Difference Mobile is 4G…)
When the Labour Party gave shade to the Lib Dems
If anyone sees Nick Clegg, tell him he left the door open. Unfortunately it his his bum on the way out and didn’t close properly.
When Tesco got sassy over football
Free milkshake to the person who just owned @SomCena.
When LIDL got in the way of a 1D fan
Yes it is. It’s very very funny. Very funny indeed. We’re still laughing now.
When BBC3 and E4 had top bants
BBC3 might be no more (on TV at least) but it still engages with it’s followers. Like E4. And who wouldn’t want to watch a Big Bang Theory marathon at any time of day? We heart Sheldon.
When Tesco made a habit of making awesome tweets
Whoever tweets for the Tesco Mobile account basically deserves some sort of Social Media Oscar. Genius.
When Argos totally killed it
Argos, and your laminated book of dreams – we totally salute you. This tweet kills it. Every time.
When Virgin Trains had to sort out an extra passenger
No-one can say Virgin Trains aren’t responsive if you’re having a lavatorial crisis on the Euston to Glasgow service. Though perhaps they might want to rethink how much Andrex they pop in the bogs from now on, to avoid this sort of tweet again.
When Royal Mail delivered
Poor Chilly P, we wonder if he’s ever recovered from being totally owned by the Royal Mail?
When the Police were less than sympathetic to a moaning Minnie
Well done chaps. Keeping us all safe from thugs and making sure the people that whine are shot down in flames.
When BBC Three found it hard to say goodbye
Oh, the irony. The delicious, lovely irony.
