I heard an interview with a political pundit who, like many political pundits, is immersed in controversy on a regular basis because some people who do not agree with him are nuts and would like nothing more than to see some real harm done to him with the hopes that it will silence him. In the interview he revealed that while he was recently on vacation he found out through the security company he engages to protect his family that someone found out where he was vacationing with his family and was real-time tweeting his location and the activities he was engaging in as a private citizen with his family.
I will be the first to admit that I have specific views and I do no agree with some politicians and some news pundits. My disagreements with these people are based on values and beliefs and regardless of my disdain for their point of view I do not wish them or their loved ones any harm. But there are some nutjobs out there, on all sides, who view a violent act against people they disagree with as appropriate.
The actions of the person who was real-time tweeting the whereabouts and activities of this person are reprehensible and give a bad name to anyone who engages in social media. As people who work in this realm and seek to be successful in doing so, we need to work hard to shun these people if we come in contact with them and if they are part of the communities we create they should be outcasts.
