United Airlines Uses Twitter Account To Push Male Enhancement Pills

Perhaps following the lead of Denny’s, who has been pointing customers to the wrong Twitter account for several months, the folks at United Airlines decided to use their Twitter to link out to a site selling male enhancement pills.

At some point on Thursday night, the following Tweet was blasted out by United:
“hey, i’ve been having sex and longer with this here,” with a link out to another site.

We’re guessing this was a bit of Twitter hackery and not some daring new plan to open up new revenue streams. Within minutes of the Tweet going out, it had been taken down, but not before some users managed to snag a screengrab of the gaffe.

Hey United… If you want to spice up your Tweets, we recommend hiring Conan O’Brien.

And oh yeah, just a reminder that you can follow Consumerist onTwitter too.
