Shut the Tweet Up

Don't tweet it if you don't want the world to see it.

Not sure about anyone else, but I’m sick to death of this trend in the news: “_______ apologizes for _______ tweets.” It’s like a bad Mad Lib game (RIP Leonard Stern).

Social media etiquette 101: don’t post anything you wouldn’t want on the front page of the New York Times. I would think that, given the number of scandals in the twitterverse, celebs and other public figures would think twice. Apparently not so much. Do we really need GMail Goggles for Twitter?

But at least they aren’t pretending their account was hacked.

I’m all about the prompt apology in social media, but I think we’ve come to the point that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Think before you tweet!
