Social Media Management Company Fired After Tweeting NSFW Picture on RealtyTrac

RealtyTrac uses an automated service to post on Twitter. The service accidentally posted a NSFW (not safe for work) picture during one of its regularly scheduled tweets.

The automated service was immediately terminated, and the offending post deleted.

When asked how the tweet appeared on RealtyTrac’s feed, RealtyTrac Vice President Daren Blomquist said that the tweet was a mistake and the result of an automated service that the company immediately discontinued using…

Blomquist also said that going forward, all posts to RealtyTrac’s Twitter feed will be “reviewed by an actual person employed by RealtyTrac before posting.”
