Why do athletes and celebrities continue to tweet? What possible good can come out of it? The bottom line is that you SHOULD want a filter, and possibly a few, between your brain/mouth and the general public. Even if you think you are being witty or funny the chances are that it will come across as stupid at best and hateful at worst. Just do what athletes and celebrities did 20 or 50 years ago….go to a secluded island, do lots of drugs and engage in even more high risk sex. Then shut your fucking trap.
