— -- Even Twitter executives aren't immune to direct messaging mishaps.

Classify this one under major #DMFail:

Twitter CFO Anthony Noto appeared to have accidentally tweeted what was intended to be a direct message about acquiring a company to his thousands of followers.

Noto has since deleted the tweet, however Fusion Senior Editor Kevin Roose captured a screenshot, calling it "the first ever M&A DM fail."

Twitter did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment, however Noto can at least take comfort in knowing he's certainly not the first or last person to suffer a direct messaging fail.
