I’ve said before– I just don’t get twitter. I deleted my twitter account a long, long time ago.
Lets face it, a majority of the accounts are fake or inactive. The users that are active constantly spew self centered garbage that I don’t really want to read. I really don’t want to be bothered by people tweeting about their bathroom habits, political rants, or racist diatribes framed within a 140 character limit.
At first, I viewed twitter as a avenue for spammers and narcissistic people to broadcast the details of their lives (as if anyone cared). Now, I think has one redeeming use case: it kills the careers of idiots. It is like Darwinian selection in the digital age.
In any event, news broke that PayPal executive Rakesh “Rocky” Agrawal’s tenure as a PayPal’s “Strategy Director” is over due to a series of of inappropriate, drunken tweets.
Rocky wasn’t the first to get canned because of an inappropriate tweet, and he won’t be the last.
