Don’t Express Every Thought On Twitter…

The Economist has a funny and kind of sad blog post, “How Twitter stopped a coup.” Essentially, the Virginia State Republican Chairman tweeted that a Democrat in the state Senate was about to switch parties potentially giving Republicans control. The tweet got back to the Democrats and gave them the time to browbeat the state senator into staying where he was.

*smacks head*

Moral of the story: Twitter is great for expressing your inner thoughts but there are some thoughts that should just stay in your head.
