The dangers of tweeting

A few high profile slip-ups on Twitter illustrate why we have to think twice before cooing or clucking on the 140-character communication medium. In defense of the French minister, he was sending a message to his wife. He just messed up and, instead of pushing just her buttons, pushed one that tweeted the message to her and 14,000 followers.

Good link, Karin. This just goes to show that literally anyone can get into trouble for what they post on Twitter. And the more prominent the person, the more likely millions of people can potentially see their slip-up.
