Yahoo Finance Twitter account may have already locked up the worst typo of 2017

We’ve seen some pretty bad typos on Twitter dot com, but Thursday’s screw-up from Yahoo Finance might have taken the cake.

While the company was attempting to tweet about the cost of president-elect Donald Trump expanding the U.S. Navy, things took a turn for the horrible. The word “bigger” ended up being misspelled. The first letter of this word was replaced with another consonant. You can take a guess at which one that was (evidence of it here, here,  and here).

The tweet by Yahoo Finance was promptly deleted, but with an account that has more than 700,000 followers, people definitely took notice and had plenty of reaction.

Can’t even imagine having to handle Yahoo Finance’s mentions tomorrow.

Of course, Yahoo Finance has since come out and apologized. But what does that do at this point?

Yep. So for those in the market for a social media job, you’ll likely see an opening at Yahoo in the near future.
