Xbox Official Twitter Asks Support for Help on Known Kinect Bug, then Deletes Tweet: Hilarity Ensues

on December 21, 2013 10:48 PM

One of the Xbox One bugs surfaced at launch is Kinect being displayed as not connected even if it’s plugged in, and in a rather hilarious turn of events many just saw the official Xbox Twitter account ask the Xbox Support account for help exactly about that glitch.

The tweet has since been deleted, but not before some hawk-eyed users on NeoGAF caught it on “film,” causing quite quite a bit of hilarity. At the moment we don’t know if the tweet was just a joke, a prank by an employee or the result of some relatively harmless hacking of the official Xbox One account, but it was definitely good for a Saturday night laugh.

You can see the tweet and a few user responses below, for the posterity.

Update: apparently the tweet was a mistake by Microsoft’s Social Media Manager, that forgot to log out from the official account and into her personal one before tweeting (as found out by Twitter user Jacqui Frost). Oops…
