    Tempting as it is to wrestle our head of social media to the ground and begin tweeting from the company account so I can tell everyone exactly what I really think of them, I've learnt from other brands' experiences. It never ends well.

    OH yeah I remember that! I guess if you are a SMM, this is what you do instead of handing your resignation in on a job?:D
