ANN ARBOR – Is a curious toddler taking over a Twitter handle the epitome of parents working from home during a pandemic? We think so.
The incident happened Dec. 19 when said toddler apparently got ahold of their parent’s iPad and sent out a tweet of absolute gibberish.
Followers seemed to flow with it, coming up with clever responses until U-M provided one of their own.
We appreciate you all checking in on us, we are okay. Unfortunately, the toddler with the stolen iPad is being let go however. We wish them the best in their future endeavors. Our apologies to everyone for the confusion. - UMSocial— University of Michigan (@UMich) December 19, 2020
The replies were just as good as U-M’s response.
❤️🙌🏼 As a social manager, this is always a fear of mine. Toddlers on the lose are as scary as hackers 😂— Mrs. Weber (@LaurenWeber84) December 20, 2020

Excellently handled, UMSocial team. Social media managers with children everywhere feel this deeply.— Jon McBride (@jMcBee84) December 20, 2020
It’s amazing how these blunders can take on a life of their own on Twitter, and how amusing the whole situation can become.
We’re guessing this parent now has their iPad far out of view of their toddler at this point.
