It's something else!

RadioShack, Now a Crypto Swap, Trends Over Profane Tweets
RadioShack, a bankrupt electronics retailer recast as a cryptocurrency platform, is getting unexpected attention online after its Twitter account took an abruptly explicit tone.


The former tech retail giant's still active Twitter account began trending on Friday after it shifted from tweeting about cryptocurrencies to roasting other users on the social media platform. The reasons for the verified account's apparent turn aren't clear, but its profanity-laced tweets amused other users on the social media platform.

"[W]ho else high [as f**k] [right now]," the account tweeted Thursday morning.

Um, not to get this moved to the other side, but why does the guy above claim RadioShack going nuts on social media is a “radical left” thing?

I'm not sure what's weirder, the tweets or Radio Shack becoming a crypto thing.

My guess is that the intern had control of the Twitter account when the company collapsed. S/he only just realized that they still had access and started having fun with it. Either that or a clever marketing person realized that there's only one way to get the brand back into the conversation...

Current owner of Radio Shack, the brandname, and related IP in the US is a holding company that also owns other defunct brands such as Pier 1 Imports, Dress Barn, and The Franklin Mint. There are a few hundred retail locations, mostly franchised and operating as a section within a larger store. The rest of its sales are online. So the Twitter account may reflect current owners thoughts or has been misappropriated or misused by a staff member.
