Twitter Minor Scandal

HANOI—Be careful what you tweet lest you twit someone.

This was the lesson that presidential speechwriter Carmen Mislang, a member of President Aquino’s delegation to Vietnam, has apparently learned after posting a Twitter message supposedly saying that the wine served at a dinner hosted by Vietnamese officials for Aquino and his party “sucks.”

Online surfers claimed to have read another tweet from Mislang to the effect that crossing Hanoi’s motorbike-infested streets is an “easy way” to die.

Communications Group Secretary Ricky Carandang on Friday came to Mislang’s defense and said the issue about her Twitter messages about Vietnam was a minor one, and a closed book.

Carandang said Mislang, who has since deleted the messages, meant no offense and was apologetic. She had been told to be more circumspect about what she would post on her Twitter account.

Carandang also said Mislang’s tweets were “pretty harmless,” although they might be also “potentially embarrassing.”

Facebook and Twitter have since been abuzz with reactions to Mislang’s tweets.

A tweet is a text-based post of up to 140 characters on the microblogging site Twitter.
