Joe Paterno Tweet Mayhem Results in Ashton Kutcher Handing Twitter Account Over to Management Team
It seems Ashton Kutcher can no longer think, speak or tweet for himself; so he has decided to turn over his Twitter account to his management team.
Last night, the Twitter world was abuzz with the firing of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno and obviously Kutcher didn’t get the memo.
Paterno has taken some heat in the past couple of days, and was fired yesterday, for possibly covering up former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky’s alleged sexual abuse of young boys.
The 33 year-old actor tweeted, “How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste,” which he removed after receiving many angry tweets and finally figuring out why Paterno was actually fired.
Kutcher explained that after coming home from work he saw the headline of Paterno’s firing. Then, later on received the full story when watching ESPN.
His ignorance resulted in posting several tweets apologizing and explaining he did not have all the facts. He later tweeted and vowed to no longer tweet, until he found “a way to properly manage [his] feed.”
Well, he has now found a way, which he wrote up in a blog post titled ‘Twitter Management,’ revealing:
“I feel responsible for delivering an informed opinion and not spreading gossip or rumors through my twitter feed. While I feel that running this feed myself gives me a closer relationship to my friends and fans I’ve come to realize that it has grown into more that a fun tool to communicate with people. While I will continue to express myself through @Aplusk I’m going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst Media to ensure the quality of it’s content.”
Kutcher made it very clear that he does not support child sexual abuse and wrote, “And as an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more deeply saddened by the events at Penn State.”
He ended the blog post by saying, “My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended. It was a mistake that will not happen again.”
