If you’re active on Twitter you must know the concept of ‘promoted’ tweets. Basically, they’re paid tweets promoted by brands to make their product more visible on social media. Usually, these tweets are explanatory tweets talking about the greatness of the commodity. But I was surprised to see this rather strange tweet being promoted last night.

People really couldn’t believe that a tweet like that would be promoted.

But finally, a few wise souls came to the world’s rescue and explained that this tweet really means.

So the 18-year-old this man is tweeting about is actually whiskey! Still, why was this tweet promoted?

So what do you think? Was this tweet ‘promoted’ by mistake? Or was it some weird way to get more followers?
