N.J. Man Gains 4,000 Twitter Followers
After Users Mistake Handle For Saudi Company
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - A New Jersey man whose Twitter handle spells out the name of a Saudi telecommunication company suddenly found himself with more than 4,000 new followers in a 24-hour span.
And not all were happy.
ArabNews.com said that the guy goes by St. Chris on Twitter. His handle, @StC, had customers of the company with the same name — STC — tweeting him about service issues.
He promptly changed his Twitter bio to say, “I am neither a Saudi phone company nor a shopping mall in Jakarta, but I’m pleased to make your acquaintance.”
You never know what will happen next in the “Twitterverse.”
