One little word was big enough to make page 3 of today’s Boston Herald:
Scott Brown’s Twitter troubles light up Web with jokes
Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown set off an Internet sensation early yesterday after a string of odd messages were posted on his Twitter account, including one that appeared to be a misspelling of “whatever,” that turned into a popular online trend.
The tweets of “whatever” to critics began appearing on Brown’s official account after midnight yesterday, including one post that said “Bqhatevwr.”
Twitter users soon used the nonsensical word in famous quotes and pop culture references as the term became a Twitter trend . . .
Compounding the problem: Brown later deleted the tweets. But that didn’t stop the waves of ridicule that subsequently washed over Brown.
Funny thing, boston.com had the story (via the Huffington Post) yesterday morning, but it didn’t make today’s print edition.
Your punchline about respective editorial judgment goes here.
