Screenshot of the now-deleted and grotesquely sexist tweet.
Spotify did a superb job of alienating part of its audience Friday afternoon with a completely tone deaf tweet. In an effort to rally engagement around a free subscription to Spotify Premium, the streaming music service tweeted “Ahead of #MothersDay, how would you explain Spotify to your mom?”
Real moms are not pleased.
.@Spotify I'd say that I don't need to Momsplain your app to my mom, because she understands Snapchat and uses emojis better than I do.

Hey Spotify, the whole “Moms don’t understand technology” bit is really tired.
I feel their pain.
This is just such a sad story that I could barely bring myself to read it. I felt depressed all day.
Civilization as we know it is under threat by Spotify and their evil ilk.
