Federal College Financial Aid Tweet Offends Twitter

The federal financial aid agency known as FAFSA today tweeted an odd photo of a woman seated on an airplane with the caption, “Help me. I’m poor.”

The tweet was taken down about an hour after it appeared.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is required for anyone seeking financial aid from US colleges and tens of millions of students and parents fill one out online every year. The FAFSA offices were closed late Tuesday but the tweet did come from the agency’s official Twitter account. Twitter followers were not amused.


Do you find the tweet offensive or funny?
