The people behind the Co-operative Food’s Twitter account must be having a few blushes this afternoon, after tweeting a photo of a topless man on its stream by accident.

The photo, which has now been deleted, was taken by the man in front of a mirror and is being described as a ‘technical hiccup’.

Co-operative Foods has said ‘we think it’s better if we show you food pics instead!’ on its Twitter feed.

At time of writing, the Co-operative’s press office had not replied to a request for comment.

UPDATED: A spokesperson for the Co-operative Food told The Drum: “We are not responsible for posting this photograph on our Twitter feed and are currently investigating how this happened.”

ahahha! This happens all the time when you have a tweet manager who operates a personal and corporate account. You're going to balls it up sometime. I tweeted a little poem about having a stye from the company account once. I nearly died from embarrassment. Thank god I don't work for such a massive company! At least this was a little bit funny. Glad they took a light-hearted approach to it!
