Many Politicians Get into Hot Water Over Twitter Posts

Twitter - be careful who you kill or what you sayFollowing in the wake of “WeinerGate” many congressmen who have Twitter accounts are taking a fresh look at Twitter and wonder if perhaps they should scale back their access to such new technology.

According to a professor at NYU, “many politicians don’t understand the power of this new instantaneous form of communication and the trouble it can cause.  Tweets are intimate conversations between thousands.”

Congress is calling for changes to Facebook, Twitter and the world wide web.  Representative Weiner told reporters that censorship may be necessary. “In this age of terrorism it’s all about cyber security.  And my wife is really pissed at me.”

The following are just a few of the “tweets” that have damaged politicians and other public figures.

Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), representing Texas’ 25th district recently got into hot water over this tweet:

Whenever I go to Costco I always end up buying something I didn’t intend to beforehand.  I guess life is like that.  You never know what is going to happen.  God I hate Mexicans.  Shoot them all.

Senator Claire McCaskill  (D-MO) recently told her Twitter followers about attending her daughter’s college graduation:

I’m tired of looking old and feeling fat.  It makes it so much harder to be a cougar.  Lots of young boys here at college. I took one of my daughter’s classmates into an alley and had my way with him. I like it rough. Rough.  Nasty. Dirty. Filthy. Degrading.

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) got into trouble over the following tweet:

The health care reform has passed!  This is a great day for America even though Americans did not want health care reform.  And I want to give a special shout out to businesses in my district.  If you need a waiver from the law hit me up.  I’m in tight with the President.  We’re cool.

John McCain (R-AZ) shocked many with this post:

George Washington was a fascist.  He was hoping to be appointed the first King of America.  I was there so I should know.  What?  No I’m not a vampire. Holy shit the sun’s coming up! 

And not just members of Congress are having difficulty understanding the ramification of their Tweets.  Dominique Strauss-Kahn recently tweeted:

Just shot my load over a chambermaid’s face. Which is why women should always swallow.  It eliminates potential DNA evidence.

So it appears that changes to the internet are on the way.

“We have to censor it.  It’s for our own good.  And did I mention my wife is really pissed at me?” said Weiner.

  1. Twitters are only expressing their inner yo. We don’t need laws to control use of the Internet. We need laws to control ass holes.

    I’m surprised they haven’t demanded a tax of some sort.
