St. Paul Saints delete yucky tweet of dead bird [PHOTO]

Categories: Media, Sports
In the midst of their last season in the classic confines of Midway Stadium, the St. Paul Saints are currently in first place.

But one of their social media people got gross in trying to convey his or her excitement to the team's Twitter followers.

Here's a tweet that briefly appeared yesterday morning:


Sean Aronson, director of broadcasting and media relations for the Saints, tells us that "95 percent of the tweets that come from our account come from me," but this was one of the exceptions.

"We try to be humorous and Saints-like, but there's no doubt there's a [social] media policy and we don't want to put anything out that's going to be offensive or derogatory or anything like that," Aronson says.

Without naming names, Aronson says the tweet in question was published by a Saints staffer who meant to publish it on a personal account. Though no apology was offered, the same staffer deleted the tweet roughly 10 minutes later after it received a handful of negative responses.

"It becomes a lesson to everyone that when you have the keys to two separate cars, you better make sure to grab the right ones," Aronson says.

Protecting your loved ones from this incident would really be tough. As a parent, I find it very hard to secure the safety of my children. I am a father of two lovely daughters. Both go to high school. I can't be with them every single time. Me and my wife go to work everyday. It's hard to be certain about their whereabouts and situation. Good thing I discovered this amazing application installed on my children's phones. It has a panic button that my children will press in case of an emergency. As simple as that it will automatically be connected to a  24/7 Response center and if needed, your call can be escalated to the nearest 911 Station. Me, along with my wife and close friends as my children's safety network, will be notified also through text message or a conference call. I worry less. This can help you too.
