All the news that’s fit to tweet, almost

I monitor my Twitter and Facebook streams in a program called TweetDeck and have one column dedicated to news with tweets from local, national and international news. A few of the tweets last week seemed just a bit off to me, so I thought I would share.

childhoodA local TV network tweeted to help one of their charity partners get a grant to fight childhood. When I pointed out the unfortunate truncation, they retweeted and were actually fighting childhood hunger. Fighting childhood… jeez.

Intelligent What!?

assesAnd Breaking News quoted (well almost) Reuters about the intelligence asses Syria used. Well, you do have to kind of be an ass to use chemical weapons.

Unlawful Murder

unlawfullyAnd not to be outdone, the BBC tweeted about a man who unlawfully killed his children before taking his own life. Makes you wonder if it is OK to lawfully kill someone in England?
