Walmart’s promoted tweet gets an unfortunate placement

Here’s the thing about promoted tweets. You can never quite control what they’ll show up next to. In Walmart’s case, by an unfortunate coincidence, (or an algorithm with a wicked sense of irony)  its promoted tweet about delicious tacos showed up right next to a news story about Walmart workers getting food poisoning. 

Sure it’s a one off thing and there’s no guarantee it’s going to keep happening on other Twitter feeds. But it happened on this one. And it was hilarious. 

Thanks to one of our readers in Denver for sending this in!
