By the way, those above tweets are what Domino's considers an official announcement via their social media channels. Because #brands.

The idea is that you'll be able to register your Twitter handle with your existing Domino's pizza account, at which point you can throw a tweet at the Domino's corporate handle. They'll send you an automated direct message, and then BOOM. Pizza to your door.

What beautiful times we live in.

Build-A-Bear's hastily-deleted tweet was just one of several brands caught in the act of turning one of the most deadly attacks on American soil into a chance to promote their #brand with #sales on Twitter. That doesn't even compare to these four though. Here's Intimacy Box, a lingerie company, who had the gumption to even get the date of the attack wrong:

Of course, what better way to think about and honor 9/11 than from a company that makes prosthetic fappable lady-bits:



And finally, here's a series of tweets (via Brandon Wall) from a Bikram Yoga studio in Arlington, VA:



Bikram Yoga eventually apologized for any insensitivity, but not before laying down the Loose Change conspiracy nonsense and a healthy lack of Basic Human Dignity.

Best Buy has apologized for a Tweet the company sent out Thursday in an attempt to ride the wave of popular "Serial" podcast.

In case you haven't listened to it yet – which you should – the show from the creators of "This American Life" is a week-by-week investigation into the details surrounding a murder that took place in Baltimore in 1999.

Warning: some minor "spoilers" ahead.

Adnan Syed is in prison, charged with his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee's murder, and part of the case involves him using a payphone at a Best Buy parking lot.

The problem host Sarah Koening discovers is that there never was a pay phone at Best Buy.

"We have everything you need. Unless you need a payphone. #Serial" the store posted.

The crime is said to have taken place in the parking lot as well, so it's in a bit of poor taste on Best Buy's part to make light of the situation for corporate promotion.

"Serial's" account retweeted it – among may others – before it was quickly deleted.

They eventually said they were sorry.
