What Happens on Twitter …

by Kim Taylor

I think you know where I’m going with this. New mediums, new rules, right? Wrong.

If you’re a Twitter fan, you’ve probably already heard about Ketchum’s Twitter faux pas. And, maybe you even read about the National Post reporter embarrassment.

Both examples are classic Internet 101. What you write, blog or tweet gets forwarded, screencaptured, re-tweeted ad nauseam … especially if it’s inflammatory.

Expanding on a tweet from Bad Pitch Blog co-founder, Kevin Dugan, I’d like to save you from any potential Internet humiliation by reminding you that:

Twitter has the immediacy of Instant Messaging with the Permanency of Blogging

Just remember, you never really know who’s reading.
