It’s called “Your Tweets Are Bad,” and you can find it at @urtweetsrbad. It exists for one reason and one reason only: to highlight lame tweets from recognizable brands.

Digiday ran a short Q&A with the anonymous owner of @urtweetsrbad — it’s someone that’s been in the marketing industry for about five years and currently works in social media and started the account just for fun.
