Blogger says Ground Zero Mosque’s twitter consultant made sexually inappropriate comments 

Oz Sultan, the man behind the Ground Zero mosque’s notoriously pugnacious twitter feed, apparently lacks tact in real life as well, according to blogger Meghan Keane:

Tweets that work for entertainment companies are not necessarily the same kinds of messages that should come from a mosque under fire from angry politicians and misinformed citizens.

Tact might not be Sultan’s strong suit. The first time I met the social media strategist, it was at a marketing event, where he explained he did social media for beauty brands — then started trying to guess my bra size. While I grew visibly irritated, he seemed not to have a clue why his comments might be inappropriate.

Others I’ve spoken with have had similarly awkward interactions. Such miscommunications also seem rampant on Park51’s Twitter. Like this response to an apparently Amish person:

“Amish saying stop Muslims? 1. What are you doing on the computer? 2. That’s not very Amish 3. Shouldn’t you be making butter?”

Not particularly funny.
