twitter quitter

“While I will continue to express myself through @Aplusk, I’m going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst as a secondary editorial measure, to ensure the quality of its content. My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended. It was a mistake that will not happen again.”

This was a statement that Ashton Kutcher made in his blog after he mistakenly made this tweet:

Tweeting without realizing why PennState football coach Joe Paterno was fired, he learned an hour later that it wasn’t based on “Jo Pa’s” coaching. Kutcher continues to apologize to anyone he has offended and even pokes fun at himself with this picture that he tweeted.

But will saying sorry be enough for his fans, followers, and critics? And does turning over his twitter feed to management really make enough of a statement?

  1. I think that the severity of the Penn St. case will cause people to remember Ashton’s tweet longer than most. However, I do think that this will blow over relatively quickly and Ashton will not lose much popularity over the comment especially because he owned up to his mistake.
