Social Media and the Casey Anthony Verdict

Like lots of other people, I read on Twitter yesterday that the verdict was expected soon in the Casey Anthony trial. As the verdict approached, I got my headphones out, plugged them in and waited.

Then, well, the verdict.

That’s when people started tweeting their reactions. My reaction? Well, I was shocked at the word choices and how others decided to frame their response.

I’m not sure what’s more shocking: #CaseyAnthony verdict or tweets from those who believe she is guilty.Tue Jul 05 18:30:03 via web

 

What I meant by that tweet was that I thought that some of the tweets people published should not have seen the light of day. They were crude, classless and poor attempts at laughs.

I’m not going to showcase the tweets I saw since that’s not the point of this post. The point, as always, is that you should not publish simply because you can; just remember to take a moment and think about what you’re posting in the social media world before you hit “Publish.”
