Tweeting travel tips under the hashtag Spring Breaking Badly, it sent a warning to travelers who might be lured into buying expensive drinks or situations where they could get robbed tweeting, not a 10 in the U.S.? Then not a 10 overseas. It apologized after Twitter erupted with responses like lonelygirl15 - stop spending my tax money calling me ugly. It's MORNING EDITION.
