This Company Advertised With Fake Kylie Tweets & Kylie’s Pissed
Last week, a company tried to drum up some social media buzz for themselves by advertising with what turned out to be fake Kylie tweets, and Kylie’s not happyÂ about it.
According to the fake tweets,Â Kylie tweeted at Good&Co, an app that analyzes peopleâ€™s personalities to match them with companies to work for, â€œLowkey hate seeing ads that donâ€™t apply to me. Keep getting promos for Good & Co, an app that helps people get jobs. Lol no thanks.â€
To which they responded, â€œSorry you have to deal with our ads, but weâ€™re here to hep people! (We canâ€™t all get paid off selfies and FitTea promotions.â€
â€œAre the tweets real,â€ Good&Co wrote on its site. â€œLike most life-altering events, the origin of these Tweets are elusive and hard to explain.â€
Only itâ€™s not actually hard to explain because the tweets are fake afÂ â€”Â Kylie said so herself.

And even if she hadnâ€™t posted that, anybody who spent two minutes researching the event could easily tell it was fake because even a social media savvy middle schooler could probably have done a better job at making this seem legit.
In a post on their website, Good&Co write that on November 29th, the screenshots â€œmysteriously appeared on Tumblrâ€ in â€œthe wee hours of dawn,â€ which makes absolutely zero sense seeing as the tweets are time stamped at 4:44 and 4:51 PM on November 21st.
Given the combined LOL and shade factors of these tweets, if theyâ€™d really gone up on November 21st, one to hundreds of Kylie Jenner stans would have taken a screenshot and even if the exchange didnâ€™t quite go viral, people would have known about it immediately.
Thereâ€™s no way it took the only person who caught their exchange, which had to have been online for at least 7 minutes before Kylie deleted her post, eight days to figure out they were sitting on a goldmine and then post it to Tumblr.
And Good&Co canâ€™t even manage a proper explanation, just a post that vaguely addresses what went down before turning into a quiz called â€œFind Out Which Kylie Lip Kit Fits Your Personality!â€
Obviously, seeing as it was all for the publicity so Good&Co dgaf about making everything look 100, but in theÂ words of a famous wise man from Baltimore, if you come at the king, you best not miss.
