Ministry of Defense Tweeting Mishap


FDG Entertainment’s latest iOS game ‘Banana Kong’ gains incredible fame in Brazil, especially after the government accidentally tweeted a highscore on its official Twitter Channel. It happened on Sunday, March 3rd when a Tweet appeared on the official Twitter channel of Brazil’s Ministry of Defense. The post says ‘I’ve reached 370 meters in Banana Kong. Download the game from the App Store and try to beat me’. The tweet was removed 6 hours later but it was already retweeted over 3000 times and the story caught fire when press started to publish the news. It is now a huge story with coverage in big newspapers and on TV.
