Careful What You Tweet

Another episode in the Gallery of Horrors -- a PR firm in Arizona lost Special Olympics as a client in the region because a partner made a tongue in cheek comment that was taken as derogatory to those served by Special Olympics.

And in related, closer to home news, don't threaten cops over the internet. You're gonna lose and get fined. As in, three years probation for trying to say a New Orleans cop was abusive of a woman.

Hmmmmmmm . . . Two local Fox (excuse me, FOX) television stories. Both about internet threats. Coincidence . . .

So I am wondering how this story jives with the latest "dumass" ruling by a judge that Twitter stalking is not Twitter stalking? http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2011/12/judge-rules-twitter-stalking-not-stalking-at-all/
