AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- A contractor for Chrysler Group LLC who posted an obscene tweet on the Chrysler brand's official account says he's sorry his four-letter flub has cost his firm the account and him his job.
Scott Bartosiewicz's posting from last week read: "I find it ironic that Detroit is known as the (hash) motorcity and yet no one here knows how to (expletive) drive." It was meant to appear on his personal account, but he mistakenly sent it to the Chrysler brand feed while he was stuck in traffic.
Mr. Bartosiewicz, 28, a University of Michigan MBA student, blamed a mix-up using a program that aims to help users juggle multiple Twitter accounts.
