I learnt a very important lesson today; the internet is not the place to exercise my personal gripes with large media outlets. I may have embarrassed myself slightly there, and there were ramifications for it. Ain’t that always the way?
The thing is, I’m usually quite cautious when it comes to what I say via social media, but I guess I still felt so bitter about what had happened that I couldn’t resist the temptation to take a stab, which of course reflects much worse on me than anybody else. The thing is, I do know better. I think over time, like many other regular internet users, I’ve been able to separate what occurs online from real life. Because there’s a degree of separation between what you express on the internet and yourself, it can become easy to forget that those words and actions can have real world consequences.
I will be more careful next time. Lesson learnt.
