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.
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.”
