Social media can be your best friend, but it can also be your worst enemy. I wrote a blog post about how one word can ruin your credibility. In Rep. Weiner's case, it only takes one indiscreet photo.
I won't spend too much time on Rep. Weiner's guilty admission to the scantily-clad tweet he sent. I'll leave that to CNN. It's unfortunate that social media --once again -- has been used for unethical purposes. Charlie Sheen took advantage of Twitter for his own promotional purposes -- where there is celebrity smoke, there is Twitter fire.
With politicians, scandal will follow at some point (i.e. President Clinton and Monica Lewinski, etc.) - that's a given. However, does social media platforms such as Twitter make it easier for politicians and celebrities to air their 'dirty laundry'? (no pun intended).
I readily admit that I'm a news junkie and stay on top of late breaking news.
