Tweets – The Bad and the Good

This past week, something snuck into everyone’s Twitter accounts and unleashed its rage. Here are some tweets that started a buzz in the Twitterverse and caused quite an uproar:

“where in ‘substitutions are welcome’ does it read it’s free? adding meatballs to a pressed veggie sdwch is nasty and will cost u, dumbass.” (from a pizza place)

“You spelled ‘punching’ wrong. RT @ChrisBrown: No more planking for me unless it’s on a sexy lady! Lol” (Jab from Andy Levy)

“Left @DownHousHTX in tears after GM called up & asked the bartender to hand me the phone. He proceeded to curse [at] me & ask me to leave. Wow.” (After the user tweeted that someone at the bar was being a “twerp”)

“The Situation is bad for whos image??? Abercrombie & What??? I could have sworn last year they were jocking my style!” (The Situation’s response to the retailer after their “announcement”)

“Obama: “Lincoln-they talked about him almost as bad as they talk about me” Mr. Pres- tour Lincoln Museum anti-Abe display;try repeating claim” (Sarah Palin’s response to President Obama’s quote)

Twitter has become such an interesting outlet for people. Some use it to vent, others to show their love for certain celebs, and others to promote their brand or company. However, some get carried away, such as the users above. It is important to remember that unless the option is utilized, a Twitter account is public. Try not to tweet something you’ll regret tweeting later. Bad tweets can ruin a reputation faster than a good tweet can create a good one. Here is a fantastic article on the do’s and don’ts of Twitter.
