Digital Miranda Warning

Follow LawandSocialMedia on WordPress.com

Bradley Shear who was one of the first attorneys ever to specialize in social media recently suggested that maybe we should create a Digital Miranda Warning for social media.  He offered this idea after the most recent social media slip up made by Justine Sacco who formerly worked for IAC.  Here is what Ms. Sacco tweeted while on a plane bound for Africa. 

 “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS.  Just Kidding.  I’m white!”

By the time the plane landed in Africa some 12 hours later, Ms. Sacco had lost her job.
