Warner Uses a Deleted Twitter User to Hype Batman V Superman



After Batman V Superman’s performance with real critics, Warner began to mine social media for quotes to include in their promotion of the movie.

Today Warner released a new pic with a new Twitter quote, and people were quick to check the feed of the quoted user only to find the account doesn’t exist:

It’s entirely possible that @raniaresh deleted their account after being featured in a promotion for the movie, but it still looks bad for Warner to put out that quote from an account that doesn’t look to exist. A Google search does confirm that the account did exist at one point, but it’s hard to tell when it may have been deleted.
