Labour Tom Watson MP fears being raped by his intern on twitter
I should log out of my twitter so that my intern doesn’t twit-rape me…
My boss is in a meeting, i’ve made a terrible mistake, im very sorry everyone, it wasn’t meant to be offensive! logging him off now! sorry!
Offence taken. Being offended is the default position on twitter, that and pretending that defending anything said – however stupid, rasist or rude – is to champion free speech.
Idiotically, Watson keeps tweeting:
I sincerely apologise for the recent tweet. A lesson learned for a young intern. She’s also very sorry. I will deal with the matter offline.
It’s twitter. It’s the stuff of the playground. Watson’s mistake was trying to impress the cool kids…
