Moms: Don't Commit 'Twittercide'

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

CNN reporter Octavia Nasr tweeted: "Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah... One of Hezbollah's giants I respect a lot."


Now she's out of a job.

It's known as "Twittercide" when you tweet something that can get you fired.

Much of the appeal of Twitter is that it's raw, unfiltered and immediate. But if you tweet before you think, it can get you canned.

The Age newspaper in Australia sacked longtime columnist Catherine Deveny after she tweeted at a red-carpet event that she hoped tween star Bindi Irwin "gets laid." Deveny claimed she was kidding -- but her firing was no joke. (FYI, Bindi is the daughter of late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin.)

Moms, do you think before you tweet?

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
