...are either naive in the extreme or absolute geniuses, having decided to promote her new album on Twitter with the hash-tag #susanalbumparty (ie Susan Album Party) rolling on the floor laughing .  If you can't figure out what's funny, I sure ain't spelling it out for you, or providing any links. Either way (deliberate or accident) I'm sure it's doing wonders for her publicity, just as they intended.

I just spent about 40-50 seconds thinking "what is he on about" then the next five minutes recovering from almost choking on piece of apple I was enjoying after my lunch rolling on the floor laughing

I must confess that if it is a concious piece of marketing it is perhaps one of the most brilliant in advertising history

Boo, hiss, it's been retitled - #SusanBoylesAlbumParty - but only because the original was a tautology sticking out tongue

Bah humbug. Spoilsports.
We will never know whether it was a genuine mistake or a stroke of absolute genius.
