Justine Sacco was the global head of communications for the digital media “conglomerate IAC.” She then published a tweet while on her way to South Africa saying “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding.” This whole situation is probably one of the most awful and stupid things that I’ve ever heard. Justine Sacco was the global head of communications for a digital media company. Wouldn’t you think that she would understand how fast things could travel on the Internet? She had about a hundred followers on Twitter and within one Tweet; she became the No. 1 worldwide trend on Twitter. This is a prime example of how even though you have a limited amount of followers/friends on social media, you should still be aware that anything you say can and will be used against you. Nothing on the Internet is “private” or limited. It’s just kind of embarrassing that she even thought that this was a good idea in the first place.
