“BP” Cares.

It’s been a while since I posted anything on here, so I decided I’d come out of my two-week hibernation in light of this whole BP/oil spill mess in the Gulf of Mexico. Rather than take a serious look at itand give you my honest opinions on this disastrous situation, I’ll just spread the joy of some of the un-serious yet very funny business behind this whole scandal.

There are at least three twitter accounts out there that are using the gulf oil spill to their advantage and mocking the company behind it – BP.

If you are looking for some hilarious tweets from “BP” and it’s “execs”, check out these twitter profiles (@BPglobalPR @BPcares @BPterry).

I picked out some of my favorite tweets from the last couple of weeks. If you don’t check out these profiles, this is some of the stuff you are missing out on.

I don’t know about you, but I enjoyed all of that! If you want to check out BP’s verified twitter account, check it out here…………………………..I know which account is the least entertaining.

There’s no doubt that BP’s image has taken a major hit. It’s easy to find BP gas stations with many open pumps while gas stations across the street have people waiting in line.

It’s interesting to see what an oil leak can do to your image, and I’m not talking about dipsticking.

The actual BP is trying to get the mock BP twitter accounts shut down, however I’d prefer they stick to shutting down the oil leak first.
