The City of Vaughan’s investigation into an inappropriate message posted on its Twitter account has determined it was due to the actions of an unauthorized user.
At 7:23 a.m. on Friday morning, someone posted an offensive comment complaining about people who don’t put their cars in their garages when there’s two feet of snow.
The tweet was: “Everyone on my street has double garages. Who are these f***nuts who don’t put their car in the garage when we get 2 feet of snow? #dumb”
The tweet was re-tweeted dozens of times.
It was deleted about an hour later and shortly after that the account was suspended.
The city has contacted Twitter to get more detailed information about the user and is waiting for a response.
The offensive tweet which contained profanity was posted around 7:20 a.m. on Friday and was deleted about an hour later.
The city has apologized to its Twitter followers and has reactivated the account.
