Many stations like to use automated posts to their social media. It makes it look like they are “working for you.”
WXII (Winston-Salem/Greensboro) uses a lot of automation on their social pages.
This automated tweet went out Sunday just after 1 p.m.
The only problem? When this tweet was sent out, the area was already almost covered with a foot of snow.
If you hand’t prepared by then, it was too late.
