The person who runs the McDonald’s Twitter account tweeted that no one asks him how he is doing and received support from various well-known brand accounts.


Restaurant and retail jobs are one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Not necessarily because of crazy working hours and low salary (although this is also a problem), but more because of the specific customer base who are
annoying, aggressive, obnoxious towards employees even if there is no real reason for it.

Because of this, the guy or girl behind the McDonald’s official Twitter account has recently had an emotional breakdown, and has expressed sympathy through the official channel on Twitter. A large number of companies and people came out to give the emotional support he/she needed. (h&t: Robertas)

It is really fun when brands talk to each other on Twitter

Therefore, about a week ago, McDonald’s official Twitter account posted the so-called little rant, which contained a plea for sympathy. It read: “it’s always ‘when is the McRib coming back’ and never ‘how are you doing, person who runs the McDonald’s account.’”

Now, McDonald’s does have a large number of followers on Twitter, actually 3.6 million followers, but I think they never thought that such a simple request would go a long way.

It was time for Microsoft to respond to the “crying for empathy” tweet

It was a brief, but wholesome convo of love and support

One of the first to respond was Microsoft—you know, the ginormous computer software developer founded by the phenomenal Steve J… I mean, Bill Gates.

They posted a simple tweet acknowledging the existence of McDonald’s social media marketing manager and showed interest in them: “Dear person who runs the McDonald’s account, how are you doing? All my best, Person who runs the Microsoft account.”

And Microsoft was not the only company doing this, many other brands soon joined

The conversation between the two parties was very pleasant. McD’s asking “how about you?” and also asking for help with remembering their windows login password, to which Microsoft responded that they would be glad to help.

Soon, other brands responded to McDonald’s tweets. Starting from xBox then Messenger, Insta and FB, Target, Adobe, HBO, Pantene and even companies like McDonald’s UK, they began to share their ideas and expressed their support for McD!

Some of them sent their love, others shared what gripes them the most when it comes to people asking weird questions

Some of these brands include one or two of their own social media management stories in their tweets. HBO complains about how people ask them when “Dragon House” will be published. Facebook complains that everyone is asking when the dark mode is coming out (it is already there by the way). IBM is often asked when it will start manufacturing computers again, and so on…

Oops, even Foo Fighters responded by saying “Preach. People always yelling ‘Fresh pot!’ and never asking if I’ve cut back.” and McDonald’s responded by saying: “lmk if you need mccafe i can hook you up.”

Even the Foo Fighters responded, to which McD’s replied that they’ll hook them up with coffee
