Netflix’s Horny Tweet Inspires Brands To Deliver Their Most NSFW Sex Lines

Netflix has decided to put other brands to the test with their raunchiest comments. The streaming platform’s account posted a tweet, which read, “What’s something you can say during sex but also when you manage a brand Twitter account?”

This led to a plethora of replies from the Twitter accounts of various brands, leaving their users bewildered by the chain of NSFW comments.

Tech firm Ubisoft playfully responded with, “Ubisoft,” while competitor site Hulu joked, “Netflix and chill?”

Paramount Pictures also joined in with, “I’m not sure we want to touch this,” and makeup brand ColourPop Cosmetics sneakily replied, “Use your fingers for best results.” Gaming site cheekily commented, “Player [three] has entered.”

However, not everyone on the platform is pleased. One user tweeted, “911, the brands are at it again,” hinting at an immediate action to stop this atrocity.

The joke went a little off-track when IMDb tweeted, “The Mandalorian continues to dominate,” and Netflix responded, “more of a Baby Yoda lover myself.” It’s probably not the best idea to put the beloved Baby Yoda in a sexual context.

Scroll down for some thirsty one-liners from brands.

Top 5 Web Marketing Tips for New Business Startups and SME’s

1. Twitter Marketing

Set up a Twitter Account and Follow up to 5,000 of your target audience.

A large proportion will follow you back and those that don’t can be unfollowed so that you can follow some more.

This could be a particular niche or businesses / consumers in a certain geographical location. Whilst you are building followers and when you have thousands of followers, send out information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience.

2. Facebook Marketing, Facebook Pages and Facebook Group Marketing

Use your personal Facebook account to connect with potential customers and partners, also create a Facebook Page and get your friends, potential partners and target audience (clients etc) to like and share your page. Whilst you are building likers & followers and when you have thousands of followers, send out information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience.

You can also set up groups for your target audiences and get some of those to join your group where you can also share information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience.

3. LinkedIn Marketing and LinkedIn Company Pages

Make sure you have a good LinkedIn profile page that covers everything that you do including all of your skills and which links to your company website, blog and Facebook page etc. Also add links to any video that you might have etc.

Also create a Company page on LinkedIn (you need an email address on a registered domain to do this) and regularly post information, tips, offers, competitions and advice that would be useful and of interest to your target audience via your LinkedIn company page and your regular posts facility on LinkedIn.

Finally on LinkedIn regularly connect with lots of people in your target audience on LinkedIn (but not to many all at once though as LinkedIn can block you). Also join lots of groups full of your target audience and connect with them via the group (Something linkedin allows you to do more aggressively than just connecting with people).
