Unless you’ve been stuck underground for the past year or so, I’m sure you’ll have heard of a little social phenomenon known as Twitter. The current darling of the social media space, twitter classes celebrities such as Stephen Fry and John Cleese amongst its key championers – providing their followers with regular updates on their day to day adventures, no matter how seemingly strange or apparently newsworthy.
That said, it’s not all rock and roll and celebrity glamour. That’s right people – there is a dangerous side to twitter (cue dramatic music)...
In one particular and very public incident (as detailed below), a technology reporter for the National Post, one David George-Cosh, tweeted just a little too much in response to a post from a marketing consultant who had failed to provide him with comment for his story. NB – for the sensitive eyes amongst you, I’ve replaced any potentially offensive words with the word tweet.
So what’s the lesson here kids? Don’t go on twitter when you’re seriously twittered off J
