DOT Accidentally Tweets That Ferry Sank

Oops, not a funny April Fool's Day joke! Tweets by the Connecticut Department of Transportation accidentally went live when they were only supposed to be used as a test. Unfortunately, those tweets came out over a couple of day's time and said that a ferry on the Connecticut River had sunk, and another said it had floated out to sea.

The BlogJam explains how it happened.
