Mayor Rob Ford strikes again! Toronto's controversial political leader wanted to help people prepare for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, instructing his Twitter followers to "turn your clocks back" when they actually should have done the opposite. About 30 minutes later, the mayor deleted his flubbed tweet, replacing it with one featuring the correct information, but not before the Internet grabbed screenshots. As Canada.com pointed out, his "social media manager of the past 3 years quit his job yesterday."
