On Thursday night, Yahoo Finance tweeted the worst typo. While we often use hyperbole as a device, this isn't a hyperbole. It really is the worst.

Imagine a typo so bad it renders the tweet unreadable aloud for a chunk of the population.

This is that typo.


It took awhile for them to fix their mistake, but when they did, they cried "spelling error," rather than typo.


A spelling error is forgetting that it's "I before E except after C," which still makes it the same word.

This is a different word.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Yahoo Finance's (now former) social media manager. Get extra drunk this weekend.
