Twitter Ads Get a Bit Too Personal

This was a weird thing to see on Twitter in a promoted ad the other day. Can I sue for defamation since none of this actually happened to me? 😉

  1. it’s freaky, but appears to be a coincidence – I see “McBride” as well, not my name. I’m guessing that’s a character name in the show.

    But yea, that would really freak most people out.

    1. You may be on to something, I think the name of the character in the ad is just a coincidence. But really, couldn’t any social media platform do that with ads, and do we want them to? I would be less likely to buy something from someone who made it that obvious they were looking into my details. 😉
