STARBUCKS SCREWS UP

Starbucks or The Second Cup?

It used to be the Chi Latte, oat cakes, stable wireless internet and space that would determine which side of Stavanger Drive that determined my patronage.

A stupid Tweet on Starbucks' Irish Twitter account has settled the debate, once and for all!

"Show us what makes you proud to be British," the company tweeted during the Diamond Jubilee.

The Guardian reports that the coffee giant say  intended the message to reach only its UK Twitter followers.

Oops!

Starbucks' Ireland has since stated that "we erroneously posted to our Irish Twitter page meaning to post to the UK only. Customers in Ireland: We're sorry."
