McDonald’s has tasted the dark side of Twitter, following the launch of a marketing strategy involving the hashtag: #McDStories.
On 01/18, McDonald’s tweeted:
Others in the Twitterverse got a bit more creative. Here are a few examples:
http://t.co/X7dM1lbT smh lol #McDStoriesi will never eat mcdonalds ever again after seeing that rat crawl threw the pack of buns on
#McDStories. They just want their fries, mechanically separated chicken parts & wallow in shame.McDonald’s customers don’t want to tell
#McDStories Paid for my food but almost left cause I was high and convinced that the workers called the cops and were using my food as bait
#McDStories @McDonalds scalds baby chicks alive for nuggets #MeetTheReality here & take action: http://t.co/I8qoqogX #UnhappyMeal
You get the idea.
The McDonald’s Twitter account hasn’t bothered to refute all of the tweets. I can’t imagine how long that would take. It has been on defense lately though, it seems:
@peta That posting is absolutely FALSE McNuggets are NOT made from mechanically separated chicken. Only USDA inspected white meat..
