#AskJPM and public shaming #OWS

November 14, 2013

I don’t usually shill for companies but this morning I’m completely into how much of a circus my Twitter feed became yesterday when JP Morgan Chase’s PR team decided to open up to the public for questions. You can see from the immediate replies how this was going to go:

The questions asked which were tagged with #AskJPM are stunning and constitute a well-deserved public shaming of JP Morgan.

My friend and co-occupier Alexis Goldstein was absolutely killing it on Twitter, as usual. Here’s just a snippet from her feed:

Needless to say the Q&A was canceled, but not until the #AskJPM hashtag went viral in an amazing way. See more examples here and here.

Update: Watch #AskJPM tweets read by Stacy Keach live on CNBC!!

    Reminds me of Stephen Colbert being invited to roast Bush at the White House Press Correspondents’ Dinner in 2006.
