The majority of social media campaigns are rarely ever reported on when they are a success.
Stories focusing on the simple yet bizarre ingenuity of the team behind Skittles are overlooked, for instance, while, in the sporting sphere, the back-and-forth banter Bolton Wanderers and Reading FC engaged in recently did not get as much traction as, perhaps, what Tottenham Hotspur will receive after their innocuous question and answer session on Twitter was hijacked by fans of Arsenal, Chelsea and even West Ham United.
While far from a disaster (for a full-on social media crisis, search #askfroch, as super middleweight title holding boxer Carl Froch was on the wrong end of a day-long e-based jabbing), there remained a highly visible amount of questions that the Spurs team will no doubt have refused to answer.
