The Worst Twitter Gaffes Of All: I Discussed Them On TV

Categories: Celebs

Twitter is a large, open field for people--especially celebrities--to mess up in a big way.

There's something so alluring to celebs about blurting those quick emissions that they don't always think about what they're sending out to the world until the repercussions hit like a banshee on fire.

I discussed this phenomenon in the below RT piece about the world's worst tweets by the rich and powerful.

I brought up John Mayer's sloppy insistence on updating his twitter page while telling girlfriend Jennifer Aniston he was too busy working to return her calls.

Make that ex-girlfriend.

And other examples are given of the misuse of Twitter--the kind of communicational screwups that make me want to read the stuff all the livelong day while feeling like the king of discretion by comparison.

So take a look at the segment--and then tweet about it.

Responsibly.

From the outset, I knew Twitter was a bad idea...yes, they hooked the young'uns and so "everyone" thought it cool.  I don't do instant messaging either...that said, I will text friends, meaning, "Where are you?" stuff...not "OMG...who's the hottie?!!!"  That opens you up to a non-stop "conversation" when you only had one question.

and the innocent "Where are you?" question becomes a block-by-block thingy...arrrgh! I know how long it takes to walk from A to B!!!

but now you're not having a "conversation"...so when you see them (finally) yr face-to-face is all about why you didn't text back...'cause, gawd, somthing coudda happened in the missing 5 minutes.
