Some social media manager for ASUS might be getting chewed out after one of their tweets had to be deleted for a semi-racy comment about a display girl's rear.
Okay, it's actually just funny. But whoever ended up yanking the tweet probably knows that companies have to be careful - people are prone to oversensitivity.
The ASUS Twitter account, covering their presentation at the Computex 2012 tech conference in Taipei, had something to say about a photo snapped from behind their new Transformer AiO PC/tablet.
"The rear looks pretty nice," the social media guru wrote. "So does the new Transformer AIO." Boom. Twitter users @0xabad1dea caught a screencap of the tweet before ASUS had time to delete it:
It seems pretty harmless to me but you can see why ASUS's social media team had to act fast. One Twitter user has already commented that "I'm glad they deleted it. Very poor judgement. Women aren't just decorations." Crisis averted?
ASUS just tweeted about the comment:
We apologise for the inappropriate comment on Twitter earlier. We will take steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
Butt tweets aside, what ASUS unveiled today is pretty interesting. After much speculation, the Transformer AiO arrives boasting a dual operating system. It boots up in Windows 8 and can transfer to Android with the touch of a button. It's an 18.4-inch PC that can be detached and turned into a giant tablet, if one was so inclined.[h/t Business Insider]
