Today In Twitterverse: Kunz V. Armano

David Armano and Ben Kunz–two dudes who care about Social Media, PR and all that good stuff–got into it today, over what started as a seemingly innocent Tweet from Armano.

Note Armano’s disclosure above. Research In Motion is a client. But that doesn’t appease Kunz, it maddens him.

I have a couple problems here. One is the constant and unsolicited coaching going on in this space. The other is more to the point–there’s nothing wrong with being a promoter. What’s wrong is being a promoter with no class, taste, talent or skill.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
