Nothing gets erased in the digital world. Ever. Your every single move matters.
A typo by Yahoo has recently gotten it into some Twitter drama. Yahoo in an intent to tweet on Donald Trump’s desire to build a much “bigger” Navy accidentally replaced the letter ‘b’ with the one right next to it, ‘n’.
The response to this was obvious. Folks in the Twitter-verse were quick to point the error. The tweet generated thousands of angry retweets by the second with users who refused to dismiss it as an error.

Since then Yahoo has deleted the tweet and apologised. But the world of Twitter was not as forgiving. Here are some tweets that came out after the faux pas.

Yahoo already gave up all our passwords –twice. Guess they figured there was nothing more to lose. #YahooFinance — Casey Gerald (@CaseyGerald) January 6, 2017 However, in an effort to savage the situation, the company tweeted an apology.
Too bad Yahoo. You just messed with the wrong letter.
