YouTube has issued an apology for a Tweet it made today about content creators on the platform. If you didn’t see the tweet, it poked fun at how long many content creators take to get to the subject of a video using the “no one” meme format. On the surface level, the tweet seemed relatively harmless, however, it was quickly met with criticism and backlash, prompting YouTube to delete it and issue an apology.
According to the YouTube Social Team, the tweet was meant in good faith, but it admits it “missed the mark and did not reflect the spirit of the Creator community.”
“We hear you. You’re right and we apologize,” said the YouTube Social Team. “Our now-deleted Tweet was intended in good faith, but we missed the mark and did not reflect the spirit of the Creator community that we love.
