Twitter limits you to 140 characters per tweet. Sounds pretty limiting, right? Oh, but the damage those 140 characters can do!
It can force powerful politicians to step down from office or topple brutal dictators. Usually, it just embarrasses the idiot who works in the cubicle next to you.
Emma Way, a UK driver, is that kind of idiot. Emma allegedly confessed to knocking a cyclists off his bike with her car on her Twitter account yesterday. In her tweet she stated, “I have right of way he doesn’t even pay road tax!”
Neither does she, since there is no such thing as a “road tax.” You’d expect her to know that since she’s a trainee accountant. I’m assuming the training isn’t going very well.
At least one of her hundred followers must have been a cyclist because someone took a snap shot of the tweet and sent it to the police. The Norwich Police were quick to contact her through Twitter, ordering her to turn herself in. Let’s hope she takes the bus.
