It's the worst in that he should've anticipated such a ****storm from the PC police. Good god, it was a joke. If you think it was a stupid joke, like I do, then just don't laugh.

It was in very poor taste for the head of a corporation to say something like that.

That dude is out of touch with reality.

Drama Llama agrees with it? If not, why start a thread. Big F ing deal. Once again, sensativity takes precedents over a marketing plan that is actually clever. Puhleeeeaze! We have Josina for worst tweets.

Every Tweet is a tie for 'Worst tweet of all time.' Anything that can be said in such a short message isn't worth saying or listening to. Tweets are for twits with twitter-brains, but oddly not the twitterpated.

zing... I think it's pretty funny actually..

It's not like what's going on is a Tsunami (Apac) or Earthquake (Haiti).... They have some responsibility to what's happening.

Me = no compassion towards the Egyptians

You're not bright, are you?


"We have hired John Fox as our new head coach." - @JohnElway


People who hate Twitter are comical.


Anyways, the Kenneth Cole Tweet worked. A whole group of people (myself included) who don't follow Kenneth Cole now know about the new line.

consider the source of the tweet and this tripe really isn't all that shocking. what else would you expect an amoral whore of a guy to act like, mother theresa?

I laughed. Though, I'm not sure what is the funniest part. The tweet or the idea that people actually follow a twitter account to hear when the new spring line is coming out...

There's no such thing as bad publicity.

I was wondering who "epicSocialism4tw" was. I didn't know that was Llama.

How about this one:

Twitter user “theconner” was happy as she had just landed a well-paid job from internet company Cisco, but was not sure whether to accept. She tweeted the following: “Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.”

However soon after the company rescinded the offer tweeting: “Who is the hiring manager? I’m sure they would love to know you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.”

How many characters does "Hey Kids, Get off my lawn!!!" have?

Wow, talk about getting owned. That's awesome!

Yeah, that's pretty stupid. Only in NorCal.

Some street artist made an addition to the front window at Kenneth Cole's in San Fran (unless this is a photoshop):

Anyone else have any candidates for worst tweet of all time?

I'm sure that there's a Jay Cutler tweet out there that qualifies.

A little insensitive on his part, but I agree. We have become a society of second guessers that turn the trivial into the monumental.

I would probably nominate that as one of the BEST tweets, out there. A good number of them are just moronic. This one was clever...LOL
