Twitter is viewed everywhere

“What you say on Twitter may be viewed all around the world instantly. You are what you Tweet!”

Yes, you read that right, you are what you tweet. That is one statements in the terms of Twitter when you sign up for an account on Twitter. Now one thing about Twitter is that if your account is not set to private your tweets can be used especially if you are an athlete or a celebrity. Now it’s funny to me because social media is SO HUGE now a days you would think people would know to use it by now right? Well for most celebrity’s or athletes I guess they didn’t read the terms very carefully because again you are what you tweet.

Recently, a college baseball player tweeted out a very incorporate tweet that got him kicked off the team and suspended from the school. You might have seen people use tweets on Facebook, or maybe on T.V. but the person who tweeted something “dumb” deleted the tweet off their account, well they tweeted it out and it was screen shot so you still are what you tweet.

The Terms are there for a reason make sure you got check out all the social media account you have and see what you can and can’t say, but always be carefully with what you put out there on your social media outlet.
