Think before you tweet.

I have to say that even thought I don’t have twitter I still enjoy reading people’s tweets.  I think some of the best one’s are the one’s where people tweet something before they think about it.  The thing is that once its online its forever online or in the national archives.  The National Archives hold every tweet….EVER.  Even if you deleted it right after you sent it, it will still be there.  Next time you should think before you put that tweet out there.

Here are some fascinating tweets that never spent a moment on the brain:

 The National Basketball Association fined Dallas Mavericks Owner, Mark Cuban, $25,000 for criticizing the referees in a Mavericks-Denver Nuggets game in a frustrated tweet. The Mavericks lost and then Cuban tweeted: “How do they not call a tech on JR Smith for coming off the bench to taunt our player on the ground?” He is believed to be the first person to be fined by a sports league for comments on Twitter

Actress Lindsay Lohan launched a Twitter rant at her former lover Samantha Ronson, accusing the DJ of cheating on her. She made a string of accusations against her, such as: “I was right all along. Cheat”, followed up with, “Being cheated on does wonders to you. I’m doing this publicly because u&ur friends call [US magazine] People. So you win, you broke my heart. Now go away. I loved you.”

Twitter user “theconner” was happy as she had just landed a well-paid job from internet company Cisco, but was not sure whether to accept. She tweeted the following: “Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.” However soon after the company rescinded the offer tweeting: “Who is the hiring manager? I’m sure they would love to know you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.”
