These Documented Brands on Twitter are Too Cool for School

This social media account documents brands on Twitter using cringe-worthy amounts of slang. Brands Saying Bae sarcastically notes "It's cool when a corporation tweets like a teenager. It makes me want to buy the corporation's products." Bae is a prime example of overly familiar colloquialism usage. Other terms include bruh, yas, on fleek and swag.

Brands Saying Bae clearly feels these brands on Twitter are trying too hard to be cool and connect with younger audiences. The hilariously embarrassing tweets are certainly worth looking at whether you work in social media community management, are a slang enthusiast or a teen looking for a laugh. Even social media king Taco Bell can misstep and use 'bae' one too many times. To be fair, even teenage over-use of bae can be irritating.
