Linky Love, Part four

I think Joe Loong’s post on Network Solutions‘ blog about watching what you tweet about is a must read for anyone learning social media.

I found it astounding that a professional news reporter thought tweeting at a child’s funeral would be a good choice.

I think that some people may use Twitter kind of like MySpace, just update any mundane event, or even worse, offend, stalk or harrass people via Twitter.

Using the tool this way is a personal choice, but one that shouldn’t be made by any professional using Twitter as a tool to increase their Web footprint.

Hopefully by reading stories like this one, aspiring professionals in public relations and other forms of media will tweet responsibly and leave the tabloid speak to, well, tabloids.
