On February 15, 2011 an employee of The American Red Cross with access to the organization’s @RedCross Twitter account sent out a Tweet that was meant to go through the employee’s personal account but instead went to the Red Cross’ more than 500,000 followers. <br />
Ryan found two more 4 bottle packs of Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch beer… when we drink we do it right #gettngslizzerd<br /> @RedCross<br /> February 15, 2011<br />
We’ve deleted the rogue tweet but rest assured the Red Cross is sober and we’ve confiscated the keys<br /> @RedCross<br /> February 16, 2011<br />

On March 12, 2011, the comedian who lends the voice to the Aflac Insurance duck character that appears in the company’s commercials posted more than 10 jokes to his personal Twitter feed with more than 100,000 followers about the tsunami in Japan.<br />
Japan called me. They said “maybe those jokes are a hit in the US, but over here, they’re all sinking”<br /> March 12, 2011<br />Japan is really advanced. They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them.<br /> @RealGilbert<br />March 13, 2011<br />
I meant no disrespect, and my thoughts are with the victims and their families. <br />I sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by my attempt at humor regarding the tragedy in Japan.<br /> @RealGilbert<br /> March 15, 2011<br />
Love that you want to be my new voice. But first I’m using it to ask for donations to the Red Cross for Japan. www.redcross.org/donate<br />@aflacduck<br /> March 15, 2011<br />
