Fridays Are For One Question

Ever had a Twitter misfire? You know what that is – it’s an ill advised status update, one made without thinking, or one with unfortunate typographical errors. Ever done that?

I have. Yesterday. If you were following me on Twitter, you’d know that I was at Passion 2012 this week, an amazing conference where college students – poor, college students – gave over 3 million dollars over the course of 3 days to make a significant dent in ending slavery in the 21st century.

But, thanks to my fat fingers and the wonderful autocorrect feature on my Iphone, I ended up tweeting the following:

“Just saw poor college students give over $3 million to end ham trafficking.”

Yes, we gave sacrificially to create free ham. Fail.

So today’s question is in that regard:

“What’s your worst Twitter / Facebook misfire?”

    I learned to make sure you use the twitter app instead of sending it through a text, because if you think you are texting you wife informing her you will be late because you’re going to the bathroom but it goes to the wrong person ie twitter everyone knows you’re 10 min late because of business in the bathroom.

    I did see that tweet, but I just decided I was too stupid to figure out what your abbreviation meant.

    My greatest Twitter fail? Probably the one where I was complaining of all the boys going shirtless downtown in the summertime. I left out the ‘r’.

    These are beautiful comments. I’m happy to join the club of failed tweets.

    I was on a search team at our church last year. After we chose the candidate, our Lead Pastor texted the candidate that he was “pimped” instead of pumped.

    That. Is. Awesome. Thank you for sharing, Matt H.
