Thanks to the New York Daily News, we finally know why the US Airways Twitter account shared an image of a woman sticking a model airplane into her vagina with its followers. The answer? Whoever was running the account was trying to flag the image as inappropriate and ended up inadvertently including it in a tweet.

From the Daily News:

"It was an honest mistake. It was in an attempt to flag the tweet as inappropriate," said spokesman Matt Miller after the photo was allegedly first posted on their wall by an undisclosed Twitter user.

"We captured it, flagged it as inappropriate," he said. When the airline then went to reply to customers, however, "unfortunately, the image was inadvertently included," said Miller.
