|"I... can't... get... on... TWITTER!"|
Such a classic Frischling moment. It could not have come at a better time. Twitter suspended his account while he was midair over the Atlantic, about to land at New York City on Lufthansa's new A380, its first to land at JFK. On board were media and industry people invited for the occasion (and at least one idiot blogger).
We've heard through the grapevine that Steven Frischling made quite an impression. You must imagine him turning on his mobile device, about to triumphantly Tweet the moment, only to find his account was suspended. Imagine the moment he realized what had happened, and that he had no ability to (gasp) Tweet!
Unfortunately nobody whipped out their camera phones to record it, but we hear what they would have captured involved a lot of screaming and swearing. A gigantic meltdown of utterly embarrassing proportions for all adults watching it.
Add to this incident the rant he emailed to everyone in the airline industry this week, in which he accused someone else in the industry named Addison of masterminding a conspiracy against him that involved one of his wedding clients and a former girlfriend! He produced no facts that would support his claim that any of them are involved or even know each other, nor did he provide any evidence to explain how he had supposedly "traced" this person who hacked into his wife's email account (let us remind you, again, he's never been married). He also ranted that Addison had fabricated embezzlement charges against him in relation to KLM airlines.
So what do you get out of this week's events except the last person on the planet who will ever get a contract with a major airline. Would you hire this individual to help you build your online brand?
Now it turns out Steven Frischling was not invited on this flight by Lufthansa, but by the geniuses at Jaunted.com. (Although Lufthansa allowed him on the flight.) Jaunted is a subsidiary of Conde Nast Publications. Do you think Conde Nast would like to hear about its professional association with Steven Frischling?
Once again, Steven Friscling is doing more damage to himself than this blog ever could.
