LAS VEGAS, NV – In a stunning admission today, the Golden Knights announced that its social media team had failed to respond to a fan's tweet on Saturday.
The tweet, which reportedly consisted of a selfie with the fan wearing a newly-purchased team hat, was posted at 10am that day. As of 6pm Sunday, it had not been replied to or retweeted by the team.
"In the daily audit of our social media accounts, it was revealed that one fan was completely ignored by our official twitter account," communications director Steven Donte said today. "We aim to make it up to the man at a later time."
The fan, a 24-year-old from the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson, today said that he was considering asking for a refund of the hat.
"How does this team expect us to stay interested if they're not going to personally reply to every tweet they're tagged in?" he said. "It was fun being a Vegas Golden Knights fan while it lasted, I guess."
At press time, it's believed that the team is considering offering the fan free season's tickets for him and his family to make up for the gaffe.
