Show notes - Episode 327: Mind Your Posts and Quarrels
Today I tried to tell you about social media consequences, but I'm fairly certain I mixed up my stories along the way. We still had good time though, so let's go!

Pat meanders his way through tales of social media consequences.
I misspoke on the show. This is the tweet that led the "I can't believe you're using the event for clicks" person trying to shame me:
They said that this was "beyond the pale" and that I should be ashamed or something. I don't remember now, but the best part about this is that the account is now suspended.
There was a Star Wars joke involved in this, but it was something I shared separately. I remember the person taking a screenshot of that tweet and being all "and THIS isn't making fun of tragedy???" I didn't see the connection between Darth Vader and Nazis, but maybe I'm just not in on the important stuff.
I think the lesson I learned is to not engage with people on Twitter unless they're contributing to the show in some way. That has worked since this mess.
And there you have it, pals. I think I have one more canned episode for you before I can get back to normal. Although I'm scheduling these posts before the kid comes so I truly have no idea what the show will sound like in two weeks. Fingers and toes crossed. Anyway, next week is a mailbag episode so until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
