The Ministry of Education in Singapore launched a teaching promotion video on Youtube but decided that it was best to disable comments to prevent negative views on teaching from appearing, yet decided to selectively share the good tweets in print.

However, popular Singapore blogger, mrbrown was rather irked by this twisted irony and the fact he was quoted without even being informed.

Wrote mrbrown,

Thanks for liking my tweet enough to use it for your half-page newspaper ad, Ministry of Education. But hor, next time ask me first, can? Or even tell me beforehand?

…So your Youtube video cannot leave comments but your newspaper advertisement of your Youtube video suddenly displays "comments" from the likes of me? Ironic, no?

mrbrown also warned the agency that he will be giving them a “public canning” if this happens again.

The agency has since apologised.
