Arby’s can support/advertise with anyone they wish,
but I think they dumped Rush Limbaugh on purpose to get some attention.
Be careful what you ask for, Arby’s.
Ha, I got blocked by @Arbys.

You may recall that yesterday, Arby’s announced via Twitter that it would no longer advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s show. Conservatives were not at all happy – and they got very vocal about it.
Well, as it turns out, Arby’s has begun blocking conservatives who have tweeted complaints.
The customer is always right, except at @Arbys. Tweet any criticism of them and you’ll get blocked. Typical gutless left-wing bitches.—

So, @Arbys, now you’re blocking people asking you why you caved to extortion tactics? Can you say “doubling down on failure?”—

Check out @Arbys … if you’re interested in watching a brand commit suicide by social media.—

Has a company Twitter account ever blocked its customers for complaining before? Is this … unprecedented?
In any event, Arby’s, we’re thinkin’ you really screwed up.
