Twitter fail – Susan Boyle’s unfortunate album launch hashtag

Susan Boyle would reportedly like George Clooney to be cast as her manager in the big screen story of her life

SUSAN Boyle’s new album launch is getting plenty of attention on Twitter – but for all the wrong reasons after her team selected a poorly thought out hashtag.

The singer’s team selected the hashtag #susanalbumparty to promote the album’s launch, however Twitter users were quick to notice a different message from the phrase .

Twitter encourages users to place a key word or phrase behind a hashtag in order to contribute to trends on the site.

One user said: “Did I get this right? The hashtag for Susan Boyles album launch is #susanalbumparty ? Somebody didn't think that through...”

Another joked: “Even Susan Boyle gets more action than me #analbumparty”

The choice of hash tag has even led to suggestions by some users that it was a stunt to drum up more publicity for the album’s launch.

Boyle’s latest offering ‘Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs from the Stage’ was released in Ireland last week.
