If there’s one thing that unites verified Twitter users, it’s that they’ll use the platform to complain about the most mundane of travel inconveniences. Flight delays, spotty $35 WiFi, mean flight attendants — you can bet that the social media producer at (insert airline) will hear all about it!
Chris Long is here to defend your honor, airline social media people.
When Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox tweeted about an unpleasant interaction with an American Airlines flight attendant on Monday, his Eagles teammate couldn’t resist poking fun at the complaint.
But Long took the Twitter trolling to another level, changing his avatar and name to match American Airlines. Long then fired off this response.
“Get over it.”
At first glance, it looked like American Airlines was publicly mocking Fletcher Cox. The verified checkmark went a long way, but look at the handle — it was Long.
Cox was a fan of the joke.
The real American Airlines provided a more customary response to the tweet.
I think Long’s was better, though.
