What Four Letter Word Should You Never Tweet, Or You Just Might Go To Jail?

Twitter in JailThe other day I was fixing a sink at my house and my finger got pinched pretty badly.  Of course, instinctively I yelled out as many bad words that I possibly could to ease the pain.  It didn’t work.  Now imagine that same scenario, and after you yelled your bad word...you know the four letter variety...a cop came knocking on your door, arrested you, and left you scrambling to find a bail bondsman and a lawyer.  While this example is a little extreme, it seems crazy that people are getting pinched left and right on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter for posting things about other people.  We aren't condoning this or saying that it is okay to demean someone on line, but it seems like we are getting very close to crossing some lines around freedom of speech.  Check out this story about a blogger who through down one of the worst four letter words out there (Hint: See You Next Tuesday) in a recent tweet about a local politician.  He is now looking at 6 months in jail.  Read the original story below.
