So, what did you do this weekend?
Chipotle: Oh, you know. Went on an epic search for an avocado in Colorado, learned how to pronounce “cilantro,” then asked the boo to pick up some groceries on the way. Typical weekend.
This past Sunday afternoon, Chipotle’s Twitter account was seemingly taken over by the most nonsensical of hacks. Its usual responses from PR reps Joe and Candace were replaced by a series of bizarre tweets ranging from a question fit for Siri (“Find avocado store in Arvada, Colorado”) to a nonchalant request for groceries (“Hi sweetie, can you please pick up some lime, salt, and onions? twitter.”)
When Mashable reached out to the burrito chain for an explanation, the company simply responded, “I’m glad no one went Anthony Weiner on us, but everything seems to be fine.”
So was Chipotle hacked or is this just an ingenious marketing stunt? Or aliens? Must be aliens.
