Ever think your email signature is ignored or overlooked? Think again. This little slice of digital real estate is getting more and more attention (for better or for worse). When done well, it can be an extension of your company’s brand and serve as a new way to distribute content. But when it misses the mark, it could spur a variety of emotions (laughter, anger, distrust, judgment, etc.) from your audience.

Thumbing through examples of bad email signatures is fun (a lot fun actually). Reading the commentary about funny email signature fails is even more fun. And you can definitely get your pick in the Twittersphere. So we decided to scroll through the many tweets in 2016 about email signatures and share our favorites.
