I'll never understand why major brands have such a difficult time using social media correctly. Not so long ago Dodge thoroughly embarrassed itself when it sent out a tweet of what it claimed was one of its vehicles decked out in police car trim. The problem was the car that Dodge tweeted was actually a BMW.
Now Microsoft and Oprah Winfrey have been caught in a bit of embarrassment via twitter. While I seriously doubt Oprah herself sent a tweet, whoever was handling the account that day needs to think about what they're doing. The tweet read, "Gotta say love that SURFACE! Have bought 12 already for Christmas gifts."
That seems innocent enough, Oprah bragging about something that is undoubtedly a marketing campaign in conjunction with Microsoft isn't surprising in the least. The embarrassment comes in the upper right corner where the tweet was made using twitter for iPad. D'oh.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
