Micro-blogging platform Twitter is awesome if you're looking to waste, oh.... 7 hours online. But it turns out to be useful for doing impromptu studies of consumer perceptions, as the UK's social media monitoring company Brandwatch has come to know. They sifted through tweets containing the hashtag #fail to discover what consumer brand was most linked to that internet-famous one-word criticism. So who you you think it is? The answer is under the jump.

It's Apple!

Over the past month, Apple was mentioned next to the #fail hashtag in 1204 tweets.

While many complained about the brand as a whole, several criticized specific products, like the iPad and the notoriously flawed iPhone 4.

What other brands made the list? UK-based Brandwatch declares Facebook, Nokia and the BBC as runners up. They also made a point to mention that communications brands are the most criticized by consumers on the web.

What do you think readers? What are your votes for #fail brands? Comcast? Time Warner? AT&T? Tell us in the comments!
