Most recent example:
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 4, 2015) – A woman suffered a heart attack during a New Year’s Eve celebration at a downtown Indianapolis bar, but a customer’s complaint about the response fueled a social media firestorm.
Via Memeorandum. I actually feel mildly bad about the customer who complained. She comes across as an unmitigated jackass, of course, but I feel slightly bad anyway. Mostly because it’s close enough to Christmas that I still get to be uncomfortably aware that Jesus probably wouldn’t want me to join a digital torch-bearing mob.
Anyway, moral of the story: if you can’t control what you say on social media, don’t communicate via social media. This gig ain’t for the reckless. …Or the timid, either.
