A lesson for all: #HasJustineLandedYet Twitter Storm

We’ve all done it, or have thought of doing it. That provocative tweet that goes slightly over the edge of what’s acceptable and what’s plain stupid. Twitter is so popular because people use it to share their most inner thoughts. But in light of recent events, do we really want to know them? When @JustineSacco […]
