Unless you've been living under the proverbial rock, you've certainly heard about Twitter’s launch of Periscope, a live-streaming app that aims to supplant the other recently launched
live-streaming app, Meerkat.
For the past week, the agency has had thousands of people tweet at its @Periscope Twitter handle, which it has had since 2009. You see, most don't realize
that the Twitter handle of Twitter-owned Periscope is @PersicopeCo, not @Periscope. Even tech journalist Walt Mossberg
mistakenly used @Periscope when mentioning the launch.
Of the sure-to-be-continuous mixup, Periscope (the agency) Brand Manager Bridget Jewell said: "It's been every social media person's
dream. Like a kid waking up on Christmas morning, but with tons of Twitter notifications."
Of course, all of this unwarranted attention will most assuredly become bothersome and
downright annoying very soon. It's sort of like asking people to tweet @FordCo when trying to reach Ford Motor Company.
