Social Media Lesson for RBA

A social media lesson for the Reserve Bank of Australia. This morning the RBA posted a tweet about their new $20 note along with a video showing Governor Philip Lowe handing out the new note to pay for bananas. Lowe was given the two bananas in a single use plastic bag. The plastic bag did catch my eyes because subconsciously my mind sees more than what meets my eyes. And I couldn't help wondering how no one at RBA noticed it when recording and posting the video. Recently, the Reserve Bank of India stopped usage of single use plastic water bottles and plastic folders distributed at media conferences. Maybe the RBA should take a lesson from them!
