A really interesting piece from NYT that looks back on the demise of Justine Sacco, ex senior director of corporate communications at IAC , following a tweet sent out to just 170 followers, but which was picked up and went viral. The article also looks at other individuals who have met the same fate and draws out some interesting overall observations.
'Perhaps ( Sacco) .... had now come to understand that her shaming wasn't really about her at all. Social media is so perfectly designed to manipulate our desire for approval, and that is what led to her undoing. Her tormentors were instantly congratulated as they took Sacco down, bit by bit, and so they continued to do so. Their motivation was much the same as Sacco's own - a bid for the attention of strangers ......hoping to amuse people she couldn't see.'

During the recent holiday season, Justine Sacco, then the director of corporate communications for IAC, sent out a tweet (from her personal Twitter account) as she headed off to South Africa.

Justine Sacco, head of corporate communications for media conglomerate IAC, just before hopping on a plane for a vacation in South Africa, tweeted, "Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white!"
As Ms. Sacco wended her Internet-less way through the skies in blissful ignorance, her tweet went viral, and all hell broke loose. She was given the heave-ho by her bosses pretty much as soon as her plane landed, and her Twitter account disappeared. Ms. Sacco has now issued the obligatory apology for the "insensitivity" of her tweet and for the "pain" she caused-to AIDS victims, to black people, to South Africa.
