Egyptair’s Superb Social Media Crisis Management
Egyptair’s social media monitoring process has proven efficiency, it detected a photo with the company’s logo on, there were no related keywords used in the tweet to be detected by the traditional monitoring tools. Also, the company quickly responded to the tweet before it goes viral and causes a real crisis.

The company’s response imposed Haartez to remove and replace the wrong image with real ones.

Haaretz’s Fake Photo
Haaretz made a fatal journalism mistake by using a wrong photo of the hijacked plane, as it might have caused a real crisis for the Egyptian airlines.
