Ever have one particular of those moments when you release one thing out onto Twitter, only to believe greater of it a tiny although later and reach for that garbage can icon? If so, you are not alone. In truth, you are in the organization of a certain Japanese automaker, who recently joined the ranks of people who’;ve suffered an embarrassing bout of tweetus deletus.
The Nissan Leaf social media staff apparently thought it would be amusing to get a light poke at Tesla Motors and its New Jersey dealer fight woes on its Twitter feed and place together the cheeky graphic which you see above. It was originally published on the micro-blogging ne2rk accompanied by the text, “It truly is okay #NewJersey, you can still #GoElectric with the #NissanLEAF #EV.” Humorous, right? Not to everyone. The image attracted a bit of mild criticism which, to their credit, Nissan responded to saying, “It’;s all in #EV adore.” Quickly, nevertheless, the original image disappeared from the @NissanLEAF feed. Thankfully, we saved a copy for your edification.
Rob Robinson, senior specialist of social communications for Nissan, informed AutoblogGreen that the Leaf Twitter account is run by an company, and that the tweet in query, “Was not a tweet that was reviewed or authorized by Nissan. We noticed it and asked them to take it down.” As for the reasoning, Robinson stated that, “We considered it was a discussion we did not want to be weighing in on.”
While we can see the Nissan level of see, we can appreciate the try at becoming irreverent. Anything to break up the monotony of the stale toast the account normally provides up – “What would you nickname your Nissan Leaf if it was Ocean Blue?” which is the final undeleted Tweet obtainable on the feed, as of this writing. We in fact applaud the intention of the Tesla submit. It all can make us wonder, even though, if the social media staff over there isn’;t in require of a little input on how they might enhance its outreach.
