Why JC Penney Needs to Tweet with These Touch Screen Friendly Gloves

In a clever attempt to develop product awareness about Team USA and the Olympics, last night JC Penney “fell short” tweeting with Team USA mittens that made Twitter users speculate that the brand was drunk tweeting from the Super Bowl. Tweeting, texting, and updating social media channels is tricky without touch screen friendly hand-wear! While everyone wants to keep their hands warm during this long winter, here are some recommendations — both fingerless and touch screen enabled gloves — for anyone who doesn’t want to appear as if they’re drunk tweeting. Take note, JC Penney, as you redesign those mittens!
