Nokia loses all its social media points with ‘F*** you’ tweet [update]

Last week, we gave Nokia props for its mastery of Twitter with a zing against rival BlackBerry, but we’re now rescinding those points after the @NokiaNZ account tweeted a simple “F*** you” today


As you’d expect, the post has since been deleted. We can think of a few explanations for it, such as hacking, a disgruntled employee, an account mixup, or a practical joke gone awry, but whatever it is, Nokia isn’t going to be winning the Internets today. We’ve reached out to the company to see if we can find out what happened.

Update: Nokia has posted an apology:

(For some reason I'm not able to embed the tweet. I think it has not been enabled by the administrator yet. I performed a quick search and stumbled upon this vBulletin plugin or add-on of some sort, Twitter BBcode)
I'm a bit late to write this but its a must read for those who missed it

Probably an employee mistakenly tweeted from the Nokia account instead of his personal account. :D
