Social media has been invaluable in spreading messages and warnings, but one post made me chuckle: "Ten people evacuated. Three uprooted and lying across road blocking traffic." It was hastily changed to "tree". So what happens when posting messages goes wrong? Take a look at some classics!

Ref: 61 What hilarious typos! Reminds me of the BBC's recent faux pas with subtitles reading "The Chinese Year of the Whores"! Needless to say this was hastily corrected to "The Chinese Year of the Horse"!
