Mike Wise learns a lesson while trying to teach us one about Twitter.
Mike, let me let you in on a little secret. Twitter isn’t any more or less reliable for news than anything else. If you follow or listen to information from sources you can’t trust, no matter what the platform, you’re going to get burned.
Reputation matters, regardless of platform. People put their trust in people based on reputation.
Wise reportedly bragged about picking up new followers by fabricating stories on Twitter.
Wise made up news about Ben Roethlisberger, Donovan McNabb, among others.
