One tweet gone wrong and Ashton no longer wants anything to do with tweeting his own thoughts. “How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste,” Ashton tweeted yesterday upon hearing the news that Penn State fired coach Joe Paterno…having no idea about the horrific reasons WHY he was fired. After his 8 million followers began to fill him in (in not so nice of a way), Ashton tried to clean up his mistake. “Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet! Didn’t have full story. #admitwhenYoumakemistakes. This is an insane story, I just heard paterno was fired, getting the rest of the story now… Wow. As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.” Now after sleeping on it some more, Ashton has decided he wants no parts of tweeting his own thoughts any more. Details below.
Via TMZ: Kutcher just posted a long-winded message on his blog — explaining that he has decided to turn over control of his Twitter account to his management team — which will filter Ashton’s stream of uninformed thoughts before they are unleashed on the masses.
Kutcher writes, “Up until today I have posted virtually everyone of my tweets on my own, but clearly the platform has become to big to be managed by a single individual.”
He continued, “While I will continue to express myself through @Aplusk I’m going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst Media to ensure the quality of it’s content.”
Do you think he’s overreacting to his one mistake or is he doing the right thing?
