If you’re an active Twitter user, no doubt you’ve seen the following statements in people’s profiles:
“All opinions are my own.”
“Thoughts are all mine.”
“RT’s are not endorsements.”
Honestly, I think it’s getting ridiculous how often I see it. And people get nuts about it. The text is bolded, italicized, and put in “quotes.” Really? Are lawyers managing Twitter now, or is everyone paranoid they’ll get fired by their employer for posting stuff?
Either way, if you avoid swearing, don’t post anything negative, and are generally pleasant to others on the platform, can’t you make a statement or state an opinion without having to constantly stipulate that what you’ve said should not be misinterpreted, misconstrued, or taken the wrong way? Lighten up people!
Ok, I’ve stated my opinion. What’s yours on the topic?
