The NFL says they are brushing up their cyber-security and speaking to law enforcement after their twitter got hacked yesterday.
What the hell for? That was the funniest thing that has happened in the NFL all year. “We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away. He was 57. #RIP”
Just a normal old Tuesday, and suddenly 19+ million followers are getting an “oh by the way” tweet that Rog Goodell has dropped dead, chased with the perfect #RIP.
I do agree, they should find out the hackers responsible, They should find them and HIRE them to run their timeline. Give him a game ball. Give him a job. Then you should go to whoever ripped down those tweets and fire them.
@NFL has 119 thousand tweets, and they tore down the only ones anyone has ever cared about.
Look at the tripe that’s up there now… Joey Bosa on the practice field Fletcher Cox is happy to be back with his Eagles teammates… A lame Don’t Call it a Comeback reset for Marshawnzzzzzzzzzzzz. You tell me, that’s better – those things, or this one: “Oi, I said Roger Goodell has died. Don’t delete that tweet.”
That sucker was up for about 90 seconds and got over 2,000 retweets. That’s content. That’s social networking.
If anything, they should be talking to their cyber-security team about doing LESS moving forward. Don’t even bother changing the Password from “Password” to “Password1.” Just leave the original. It worked.
Even Big Rog rose the dead and laughed it up. @nflcommish “Man, you leave the office for 1 day of golf w/ @jimkelly1212 and your own network kills you off. #harsh”
No, Roger, – #Hilarious!
Nothing gets Twitter going like a good death hoax. And frankly, it’s especially viral if it’s about someone that a lot of people hate.
Plus, what’s the NFL about more than anything? Stealing pub from other sports and dominating news when they’re not even in-season. This might be the time of year when the NFL is the deadest… So why not just rip the world’s eyeballs by saying Rog is dead? It worked.
It was probably the best pub the Commish has gotten in 5 years.
