Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Especially when time is limited. Today, we noticed on Twitter that we were spamming people. At first we thought it was another attack, but then we realized that it was actually us doing it.
I had given a poor instruction to one of our summer workers and now I have to pay the prize for it. Naturally, it is not his fault, but it is entirely mine. I am sorry for all of you who have received a spam comment (about 50 people) from me today.
A standard text was written that would be used as a base when contacting bloggers. This was interpreted as being the EXACT text that should be distributed. I was sloppy in my instructions and so things went terribly wrong.
This is nothing we should be doing and it will not be repeated. So bring the heat and direct it towards me, cause I am the one who deserves the beating!
