A Forbes contributor writes that Ronald McDonald has failed on Twitter – in part because he does not have a Twitter handle.
Seems Twitter users scooped up @RonaldMcDonald, and numerous variations, resulting in Ronald McDonald being relegated to a hashtag #RonaldMcDonald.
So here are our three suggestions, if they are not taken (and if they are taken, buy ’em McDonald’s):
1. @SirRonaldMcDonald – Sounds classy, right? We’d order whatever high-end cuisine that mascot would peddle. Also, it implies he has been knighted, so he must have a sword, which could be used to cut fries. Someone has to pay the bills.
2. @HamburglarStoleMyHandle – Completely plausible explanation of how one of the world’s largest corporations missed acquiring the right Twitter handles. And allows for mock conversations with @Hamburglar.
3. @McDonaldsFullOfCryingBabies – Totally describes our McDonald’s experiences, and gives an opportunity to show pics of how mascot clowns can make crying babies happy. Try that airlines or Starbucks, without any mascots.
