People who are unable to get help from Charter’s regular customer service have always had another, social media-riffic option: contacting the dedicated Facebook and Twitter representatives.

It’s always fun to get mysterious charges on your bill and then not get a response as to what said fee is for. And by “fun,” we of course mean, incredibly frustrating. Such is the case for Consumerist reader Donald, who’s having a mite bit of trouble getting Charter to cough up a good excuse.
