Politico is reporting that Microsoft accidentally delved into the world of partisan politics over the weekend after tweeting out a message insulting conservative author and syndicated columnist Ann Coulter.
In response to liberal economist Robert Reichs tweet that he would be visiting his granddaughter and sitting on a panel with Coulter over the weekend, the tech giants official Twitter feed reportedly responded: @RBReich your granddaughters level of discourse and policy > those of Ann Coulter.
Here is a purported image of the tweet: (see link)
The tweet was deleted immediately, according to Politico, and was accidentally written by one of the individuals who manages the companys Twitter account.
[The] tweet obviously is not an official statement by the company, Microsoft stated in a press release.

The tweeter is right. Coulter cannot be trusted.
Why do thes things happen to the nicest peopLE?
I’m sure there is more than one liberal idiot on Microsoft’s payroll, given that is headquartered in Seattle, a town run by liberal idiots. No need to take it out on Microsoft, however.
I fully expect conservatives to hijack Microsoft’s Facebook page and turn every post into a debate on the company’s positions....... Not.
When Reich sees Coulter next time he should kiss her a**. He won’t even have to bend over.
That’s great. I’d been having a tough time figuring out if I should get a Mac this time. Now Microsoft was kind enough to make my decision for me.
Well, Coulter is nothing but a Romneybot so...
It maybe was accidently sent, but it was NOT accidently written.
What’s the old saw about monkeys with typewriters? I guess it’s true. Oops, Microsoft accidentally wrote something cogent, lol.
Microsoft is NOT headquartered in Seattle and Seattle's municipal government has nothing whatsoever to do with Microsoft. What's more, I previously have not read of Seattle being referred to as a "town" in over 100 years.
I worked in MS Corp PR for 10 years, the poor sap who did this is probably going to be looking for a new job on Monday morning. They don’t come more liberal than this group does and they make covering the company’s ass into an artform. I was one of 3 conservative in a 90 person team. Really toughened me up.
Well choose the one you fell is best, not which is more liberal of the two. For my money I would bet Apple to be much more liberal. At least Gates is giving the better part of his fortune to charities (whether or not you like them ), what did Jobs do with his while alive?
I would have thought the person at least could have given Ann the benefit of the doubt and tweeted “> =” instead of the more stark and brutish “>”.
oh sure I believe that
oh sure I believe it was an accicent(wink)
Accidently? His/her fingers happened to type out those letters and then hit the right button to make it get sent out??
I believe it was an accident. There’s no way they would do something likwe that on purpose.
the pre plan and plan on the spot. to everything EVIL....
Accident my ass!
RIGHT.... He is about eye level to her butt.....
So MS-NBC is the Microsoft ownership of the most rabid leftwing news network in America.... Okay, even as an MCSE I would abandon MS for any other OS on a computer thanks to their Investment in MSNBC.
Accidentally? Probably not. Much of the IT-biz most highly placed technocrats are rabid jihadist fellow travellers, occupy members and general communist West-haters.
Don’t read Coulter anymore.
OK, I admit it, I'm probably one of the few on here that doesn't use Twitter, so would you please translate for me. Thanks.
You must be diogenes. I’ve been looking for you. Seems like you’ve been hiding in the weeds.
It’s not a tweek translation, but one of algebra.
Anyways, I don’t use twitter either... and the point, i believe, behind the post is apropos: It’s so obscure... this is news today?
If angle brackets had case, I’d have to ask if the author meant little-angle-bracket or BIG-angle-bracket.
Robert Reich mated?
Coulter has always been for the inventor Romney-care to replace the inventor of Obama-care..
Her Bull-Shit Meter must be broken... or is watching to many Cartoons..
Myth is surely Wiley E. Coyote in this election...
Coulter would like to think she is Jessica Rabbit but she’s NOT...
Pretty funny. I am sure Ann will be highly insulted. She is always so polite and though full in her comments. She would not think of insulting anyone.
Most commercial twitter clients allow you to switch between accounts. He probably meant to post it to his personal account instead of his corporate account. Like the Chrysler guy, he’s probably fired.
Why should he (or she) equivocate, if it’s not what he (or she) believes? “Greater than” is a stronger statement than “equal to or greater than”. (I’m just debating algebra; not the relative merits of Ann Coulter.)
Microsoft hasn’t had a stake in MSNBC in years.
Posted from my iPhone, by the way.
Thanks C210N (I think) :-). I swear I’m a college graduate and still don’t understand what the anti message is, but that’s ok, I’ll just use my imagination.
They're BIG libs though. Bill Gates' "charity" is a huge supporter of Planned Parenthood International, the UN Population Fund and other causes. A quick search of donor records shows about one million dollars donated to the DNC & Dem congressional committees by Microsoft employees and under $190K to Republicans across the 2008-2012 election cycles. More than eight in ten employee dollars is going to Dems.
If she is not relevant, why are you posting?
The tweeter is saying that Reich's granddaughter is smarter than Ann. The GD's level of discourse is greater than Ann Coulter's. Does that help?
Thanks—got it. Takes me a while, sometimes.
Mac’s are better. But everyone in Cupertino is voting for the Marxist, too.
Hey, is there still a little fish&chips place at about Quadra and Pandora? Loved it, can still remember the taste from 34 years ago.
Microsoft is sexist.
Everyone knows Gates and his father are Dems.
Understood. But they’re not tweeting about it
MSFT was never an owner of MSNBC and has ended their relationship with them. I am not arguing that liberlas out number conservatrive 10 to 1 there, but I think it’s important that we remain factual in our arguments.
BTW, Steve Ballmer is a big donater to Benjamin Netanyahu.
