Social Media Branding 101

Next time you see some intern get a company into serious trouble with a botched "official" tweet, remind yourself that it could always be worse if the boss is a real killer.

An apparently errant tweet by the Taliban's spokesman in Afghanistan gave his location as being in neighboring Pakistan.

On Friday, a tweet by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claiming an attack included geolocation information that suggested he sent the message from Sindh, Pakistan.

Mujahid later sent a tweet Saturday describing the location leak as an "enemy plot." He also offered his Afghan telephone number to confirm his identity and wrote: "With full confidence, I can say that I am in my own country."

Oops.  Hope he doesn't get, well, you know, fired.
