Fail of the Week (so far): Federal Student Aid TRIED IT

I keep trying to tell these people that I am available to manage their social media accounts.  It’s clear that they aren’t doing so well in that department.  Anyway, so the Federal Student Aid Twitter account thought that this was a good idea.

And I’m just like….

No. No no no no no.

Do you understand how stupid this is?

OF COURSE the tweet has since been removed because they received reactions like:

The apology…..

Now.  I’m not all “BURN THEM AT THE STAKE” about this.  I’m really not.  But, I believe it was really really really stupid.  Mainly because it has so much potential to be taken offensively.  Also, because of the discussion about student loans/cost of college/education in general?  This shows that they are completely out of touch.  Yes, it was one person who did this, but they are representing, and are tweeting from, a federal agency.

It’s stupid.

And why does a federal agency feel the need to be funny in the first place?  Yeah.  It just wasn’t a good move. SMH
