Apparently Great Lakes, one of the largest student loan service providers in the US, is new to social media and wanted to let its customers know they had arrived. Some lenders were shocked when they received the following:
Twitter immediately pounced.
My student loan company just sent me an email that said if I don’t like them on Facebook I’ll probably default on my loan.

Occupy’s Strike Debt quickly jumped in:
@mygreatlakes You are trivializing college grads that are SWIMMING in debt.
