New YouTube Smear? When I search Twitter for @ZoeCello why do I get “YouTube Creators” account as search result? Why does it point to Business Insider Article?

Try it yourself.

I don’t know.  Maybe it’s just me.  But if I search for “@zoecello” on twitter I get this YouTube account in the search results.  EVERY other search result contains “@zoecello”  except the YouTube Creators account.  Is there something funny going on here?

UPDATE:  Yes indeed there is something funny going on here.   As our good  friends at Adland.tv have quickly pointed out, The YouTube Creators twitter account has most likely targeted this search and must be using a bot cause they accidentally ran the link through 2 URL shorteners!  They tried to link to the business insider piece which is clearly part of The Great Smear Campaign Against Zoe Keating (Classic strawman argument, accuses her of being wrong about something she never said).

Here is their mangled URL:

This is where they were trying to send you.

This is sickening.   Fucking bullies.   New hashtag:
#HeyGoogleYouFucking370BillionDollarCorporationGoPickOnSomeoneYourOwnFuckingSize

Oh did we mention it was Zoe Keatings Birthday today?   Stay Classy YouTube!
