Twitter users showed no mercy to Big Four bank J.P. Morgan Chase during a not-yet-conducted question and answer session with Vice Chairman Jimmy Lee on the social media platform on Wednesday. Twitterers used #AskJPM to send questions that ran from snarky to downright vulgar, releasing tweet by hostile tweet, five years of pent up anger and frustration over the banking banditry exposed during the 2009 Wall Street meltdown, and the subsequent zero effect it had on the bloated pay packages pocketed by executives such as Lee and company president, chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon.
A gobsmacked J.P. Morgan Chase heard the people cry, didn't like it, then promptly called off the session, which might have been the first time since the financial crisis began that public criticism got visible traction with a banking institution. A spokesman for the company told the New York Times' 'Dealbook' wrote '#Badidea! Back to the drawing board!' in an e-mail to the business blog, which only demonstrated just out of touch the folks there are.
