Watch even the sober tweeting

Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, reminds us that confiding to people, esp coworkers, online can come back to bite you.

You can been tweeting with a friend, or Facebooking, and pretty soon you have mentioned things you are not supposed to know or tell. Yipes. No takebacks online!

Maybe it’s your “office” wife or husband—they may be told things your spouse does not know or does not know yet.

Or you may share exercise tips and send a shirtless pix of you at the gym.

If you do any of this, don’t freak out. Maybe change your privacy settings.

I once did this back in the Dark Ages of listservs…I said something to a friend on there about the list moderator being “an old lady.”

The comment went to the list. The moderator was not even female. That went really well.
