Microsoft may have inevitably caused offence just recently as they apologise for a ‘Tweet‘ that has been posted mentioning Amy Winehouse and her music on Twitter.
Twitter fans automatically saw this as red and felt it was a blatant effort to cash in on the 27-year-old’s singers death.
“Apologies to everyone if our earlier Amy Winehouse ‘download’ tweet seemed purely commercially motivated,” Microsoft UK PR said at a ‘tweetbox360′ account at microblogging service Twitter.
“Far from the case, we assure you,” the message continued.
Microsoft became the target over the weekend regarding the Twitter account and later posted an update inviting people to remember Amy Winehouse by buying digital versions of her Back to Black album at Social.Zune.net. The Zune website is Microsoft’s shop on the internet for downloading music, movies and video games.
