U love torturing me w this sh*t
As noted by NBC Connecticut, nearly 13,000 followers were treated to the account’s first tweet in two days: “U love torturing me with this sh*t,” followed within minutes by an apology. His office also issued a statement:
“Due to a technical mistake, a message was inadvertently sent from Senator Dodd’s twitter account. Senator Dodd did not send the message. We have corrected the situation and apologize to his followers for the mistake and inappropriate language used in the message.”
We’ve all accidentally sent emails to the wrong person, but Twitter leaves open the possibility of accidentally advertising your personal affairs to the entire Internet. This becomes even riskier for folks juggling work and personal accounts on the same device.
Look on the bright side: At least one of Dodd’s followers took the lesson to heart:
The errant tweet from @SenChrisDodd convinced me to remove my work Twitter account from my phone.
