Is this why politicians should be very careful with Twitter?

April 29th, 2011

Was this a wise point for Hain to raise today?

Twitter can become a very dangerous facility as Peter Hain is no doubt reflecting this lunchtime. His Tweet, featured above, clearly reflects his feelings about the wedding coverage but wouldn’t it have been better if he had just kept this to himself for today at least?

The problem with Twitter is that it’s so easy to publish. Sometimes it can take only seconds.

Now Hain’s Tweet is going to get quoted back at him and his party – not a good thing just six days before the crucial May 5th elections.

Update: Polly joins in as well
