Microsoft Apologizes For Amy Winehouse Tweet

A Twitter account for Microsoft's Xbox system came under fire when the administrator of the account posted a tweet encouraging followers to celebrate the legacy of Amy Winehouse by purchasing Back to Black. The tweet also pointed to Microsoft's music service, Zune, to purchase the album. It was a tacky move, one that has since been apologized for multiple times, via Twitter, of course.
Is Twitter becoming more trouble than it's worth, with celebs and business getting in trouble for what they tweet? There is going to eventually be legislation regarding tweets one day. Mark our words!
