Wow, weak. Apparently Chipotle's official Twitter account being "hacked" on July 21st was just a publicity stunt tied into their 20th anniversary marketing campaign.

So basically, some loser in marketing making seven figures a year decided it would be a good idea to fake a felony to drum up attention to their social media presence. Chipotle representative Chris Arnold had this to say about the incident:

"Chipotle appeared to be the latest brand to have its Twitter account hacked on Sunday when its main account, @ChipotleTweets, posted a series of confusing and seemingly random tweets over the course of an hour. Now, the company has come forward and admitted that it faked having its account hacked as part of a publicity stunt tied to its 20th anniversary promotional campaign. 'We thought that people would pay attention, that it would cut through people's attention and make them talk, and it did that.'" [via Mashable]

The fake tweets were retweeted 12,000 times, and the Twitter account ended up getting 4,000 new subscribers that day compared to their usual daily subscription rate of about 250.

I think we all know how Chipotle can atone for this, though. Cough free guacamole cough.

Chipotle Still Doesn't Have That E. Coli Thing Figured Out, and These Trolls are Taking Full Advantage

Maybe you haven't heard? Chipote is trying to kill you. I know, that sounds like hyperbole, but genuinely, there's been an E. coli, salmonella, and norovirus outbreak plaguing their food for over a month and they still don't have it under control. They're really sorry about it, though. Lucky for us, Chipotle's been served with a little bit of classic internet justice courtesy of fake customer service trolls Hope That Helps.

Warning: strong language ahead.
