I'm conflicted.
On one hand, there's freedom of speech on the internet.
On the other, the guy uses Twatter.

I live in Vermont. A friend in Texas once wrote on Facebook about a missing person in Texas. I made a joke to them, on Facebook, about the missing person being in my basement. A week later the local cops were at my house. Never again.

/Cool story.

Since this is twitter I feel no sympathy for these individuals. That and "sarcastic" remarks implying murdering someone brutally or committing terrorism is pretty farking stupid, regardless of your medium of communication.

"in the context of the times in which we live,"

Anyone using this phrase should be beaten savagely with an olive loaf. Using the stupidity of others as the reference point for your own stupidity is just wrong.

I found a guy who said "in this ever changing world in which we're livin" and beat him with an olive leaf. How times have changed.

good thing we won that war on terror, ain't it?

My first thought was, "Well, it's been nice knowing you, Fark."

And then I thought about all the times I have participated in discussions about going ITG on child abusers/molesters, so should I get a lawyer now or just ask for a public defender?

Won't someone remmber the officals?

Couldn't have kept the headline under 140 characters, subby? 125 if you want it retweeted. '-)

Also, I've had to restrain myself from broadcasting, "Strong margarita! Not sure I should drive...." just in case some dumbass in a hummer flattens me on the road.

Are you on the right website?

Common sense should tell you that the airport joke was just that: a joke.
 
2010-11-24 11:51:59 AM
I do not agree with what you tweet, but I will defend with my life your right to be a twit.

Did I do that right?

I realize I'll never get around to doing this so I'll leave it to one of you with more ambition. I got the idea while having digestive problems. I was going to start a blog/twitter with something like twitter\mycrap. Then never give a name or any explanation, just take a photo of my crap before flushing every time. See if I could keep it up for 5 years until someone stumbles across it. Then let the profit roll in!!!

The internet is very unforgiving when it comes to stupid actions, remarks included.

I'm all for less stupidity, but letting the government decide what is offensive or not seems counter-productive.

Anyone who uses that tired excuse should be [asked with the utmost politeness to keep their opinions to themselves.]

Twatter is the new MySpace.
 
2010-11-24 12:50:01 PM
Just don't tweet something you wouldn't feel comfortable saying with a loudspeaker on a street corner... seems like common sense to me.

"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw North Korea forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."


That's something Ronald Reagan actually said, paraphrased:

"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."
Joking during a microphone check. The joke was later leaked to the general populace. [4][5] (1984-08-11)

i'd feel worse for the dude if it didn't say in the article that he's twittering about his legal troubles related to twitter. you'd think maybe you'd give it up at this point? maybe? maaaaybe?

FTFA: The judge who rejected Chambers' appeal, Jacqueline Davies, said that "in the context of the times in which we live," with an ever-present threat from terrorism, Chambers' message was "obviously menacing."

it's this kind of stupidity that makes the "war on terrortm" the clusterfark it is. and from a judge, even a british nanny state one, it's worse.
