My Tweets Do Not Reflect the Views of My Employer

How many times have you looked at a person’s Twitter profile and read this?

They may not, but once thrown on your wall, they can stick.

Writing on the internet is like writing with permanent marker.

It takes the events of this past week to remind us of this.

It’s a heck of a way to get a Wikipedia entry or to trend on Twitter.

At times, it seems like there’s a competition to outshock each other.

Is that what it takes to get attention these days?

You may well be speaking on behalf of yourself and not your employer but it may not matter in the long run.

Digital image, digital footprint, digital future … we’ve all read about this.  Some have paid attention; some have not.

I’ve seen the debate – “Should I have a personal profile and a professional profile?”  Maybe, but just remember that at the end of the day, you are you.  Disclaimer or not.

Thanks to Miguel Guhlin for sharing this story.  Does common sense need to be legislated?
