As many a high-profile social networker has since discovered, if you lacked the foresight to snap up your domain early on it’s probably been commandeered by an overzealous fanboy or, more likely, a lady of ill-repute. Perhaps the most publicly upset about this trend is Hyundai, who only recently started Tweeting and is currently dealing with a barrage of unofficial accounts. According to Auto News, Hyundai has expressed concerns that the lusty, busty ladies of @Hyundai will taint the brand image and at the original time of publish, Twitter had failed to respond to Hyundai’s requests to have the page disabled. Since then, I tried locating the infamous @Hyundai only to find that Twitter had suspended the account, presumably in response to Hyundai’s threats to take legal action.
While this outwardly seems like a large success for Hyundai, some might reasonably argue that the tweets produced by a scantily-clad unofficial Hyundai rep are probably vastly more interesting than anything legitimate Hyundai sources have to report, but of course that’s beside the point. Congratulations on your victory, Hyundai.
