Twitter Gaffes

October 9, 2011

It seems that Chris Huhne has been the latest person in the public eye to make a gaffe on twitter, passing on a story to a journalist and then asking nicely that his fingerprints don’t go near it. It is especially amusing as it criticises a colleague in cabinet, Theresa May (who has her own problems telling apart ratio decidendi and obita dicta).

It is the latest in a long line of twitter gaffes, and it seems that politicians make the best ones. Anthony Weiner tweeted a picture of his… weiner to a female follower, forgetting that only DM’s are private (same mistake Chris Huhne made!). Where as showbiz (ugh, I used that word) celebrities generally just involve boobies, it always seems much more frustrating when a serious politician does it. They have further to fall.

It seems that the BBC might have the answer, in their short video that gives advice to celebrities.

When will they learn? Well to be perfectly honest, I hope they don’t as it’s brilliantly funny when they fail miserably on it.
