This morning, the Minnesota Twins account tweeted the following:

This is just embarrassing from an MLB team. You’re that desperate for a little extra cash?
I'm just flummoxed by this. Are the Twins now raising cash based on tweeting advertising? This isn't even the personal injury firm that advertises by doing the ridiculous reminders during the game about ownership of broadcast rights.
First, I'm ashamed of the Twins for "advertising" in their tweets regardless of the subject of the 3rd party advertising (and I'm about ready to unfollow the Twins).
Second, I despair at the depths to which advertising by law firms has now fallen.
P.S. I hope they were hacked but it really doesn't seem all that likely.
