UPDATE: NSFW: Best Tweets, US Airways image responses

A couple of days ago we shared some of the most hilarious responses to the US airways NSFW image tweet. Missed it? Check here.

Well, there’s an update to the story, and a surprising one at that. Typically, in a situation like this, heads must roll. The offending “tweeter” would be ushered out of the building faster than he could say 140 characters worth of apologies.

Was it “fire worthy”?

Was US Airways right to see it as an accident, and to resist the urge to scapegoat the responsible employee?

Or is it aaaaaallll a sneaky publicity campaign (conspiracy theorists unite!)?
