Look, making a gaffe and metaphorically exposing your whole ass in a real time, face to face interaction? That's one thing.
It feels like it should be comparatively much, much easier to avoid exposing one's whole ass through a text based posting medium, and yet the data does not seem to support that conclusion. It keeps happening.
@swiff because the structure of social media disincentivizes nuance and and can even straight-up forbid it in the case of a 140/500 character limit
it *also* incentivizes people going for epic owns instead of actually discussing things
