Twitter’s Done it Again!

This article was quite humorous. Apparently Arizona Iced tea is not based in Arizona, but New York.

Rumors swept the news channels about people ready to boycott Arizona Tea as a result, but upon tracking the source, it seemed to originate with one small tweet, said in jest, about boycotting the product.

First, not being a big twitter fan, I found that hilarious. One day Twitter is going to cause mass mayhem, and I’m gonna be there to see it. Secondly, that people actually believe it? Sure, sarcasm doesn’t transfer very well through text, but to report on it? This is why we need stricter professionalization in Journalism.
