This appears to be one of the all time greatest corporate tweet gaffes.
I was alerted to this by Jon Hendren’s tweet (@fart)
I asked for a link and voila, it appears to be true. Dominos appears to have posted a tweet that links to a page on their site which contains a video and article addressing some very kinky Dominos employees, and I quote:
“…videos of two of Domino’s Pizza employees appearing inappropriately within one of our franchise restaurants have been circulating online.”
The employees were arrested and fired. The video on Dominos site is currently set to “private” and it appears to be a corporate generated “response”/damage control video with a Dominos executive discussing the incident. I did find a youtube.com news video that is probably about this incident.
Since Dominos already made the video private, I’m going to post screen shots of the tweet and the landing page for posterity, because they might not be long for this world.
I think my favorite part of the Tweet is “Please RT” at the end. Here’s the landing page from the bit.ly link (click image to view full size):

PRO TIP: You can add the “plus symbol” (+) to the end of any bit.ly link and see a lot of data about click throughs and referring sites. The domino’s bit ly link analytics shows some pretty good numbers (for a first tweet)!
