That little blue birdie looks so harmless and cute. It’s not harmless and cute. Today it’s Rupert Murdoch, who for whatever reason, recently sent out a Twitter tweet which said, in part, “how about a real black president” – for which he is now apologizing. Used in haste, without carefully weighing one’s words before left-clicking that mouse, that Twitter gizmo can be very dangerous to one’s reputation.
It’s not too smart to send social media messages in anger or while drinking heavily – tweets for the entire world and all its people to see.

“The day I start allowing @rupertmurdoch to define what it is to be #black …is the day I turn in my #blackcard,” Jones tweeted…

Speaking of social media, phone cams, YouTube and too much alcohol to drink, here’s some footage from the New York Post via Michael Savage of a young University of Connecticut student who got himself arrested while on a macaroni and cheese tirade inside the campus food court. He just didn’t know when to quit and go home, where he’d have been safe:
