Rosa Parks

A misplaced or omitted word, can ruin a tweet.  The RNC’s GOP social media team learned this the hard way over the weekend.  What started out as a tweet, celebrating Rosa Parks, end up creating the #racismendedwhen hashtag.

Sunday evening the GOP twitter account tweeted a photo of Rose Parks that stated, “Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism”.

Ending racism?

Well, soon after that tweet was posted, they realized their “oops”, and corrected their mistake:

But it was a little too late. The hashtag took on a life of its own.




I’m sure the person behind the original GOP tweet, will never have an “oops” moment again.
