Most of us would recognise Gordon Ramsay as a temperamental host at the cooking shows like Hell’s Kitchen.

People who know him, however, personally would actually describe him as someone entirely opposite.

According to a research by Hootsuite, most stakeholders are concentrated at these 2 platforms and thus it is a good way to get in touch with them.
In the first apology post, Munoz does not really display any empathy and he is not really apologetic. He started off by saying that he is sorry that he has to “re-accommodate the customers”. This is clearly not the main issue. He also uses an accusatory tone which suggests that he is just apologising for the sake of it. After this apology was published, United Airline’s reputation deteriorated and their shares experienced a sharp drop.

Munoz also addressed his audience by recognising their “outrage, anger and disappointment” He ended off with a detailed call for action and a positive statement that company can do better. Following this apology, some confidence was restored in United Airlines. This incident highlights how we have to use the correct word in the correct context as it can make or break your company.

So what does someone so rich do with his money? Well, like Elon Musk and Richard Branson, Bezos, is also very into the space race. Perhaps Bezos is really far-sighted or maybe its sheer luck, but Twitter gave Bezo’s space company Blue Origin a lot of attention. While we usually don’t bring in politics, Bezo was engaged in a “Twitter War” with US President Trump. President Trump was blasting tweets about how Amazon is a “tax shelter”. However, instead of adding fuel to the fire, Bezos responded with class.
Finally trashed by @realDonaldTrump. Will still reserve him a seat on the Blue Origin rocket. #sendDonaldtospace https://t.co/9OypFoxZk3— Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) December 7, 2015
