Tempe, AZ, United States (4E) – U.S. Airways wrongly tweeted to its followers a link that shows the image of a naked woman on Monday and apologized after realizing the mistake.
About 23,000 of 420,000 followers of the Tempe, Arizona-headquartered airlines received the explicit photo before it was deleted.
The tweet was in response to a customer complaint sent also via Twitter. A staff handling the Twitter account of the company attached the link supposedly to a customer relation’s feedback page. That link was originally sent by another Twitter user.
U.S. Airways deleted the tweet, which was retweeted 12,584 times, one hour later and tweeted an apology.
“We apologise for an inappropriate image recently shared as a link in one of our responses. We’ve removed the tweet and are investigating,” it said on its Twitter feed.
