As a good friend and raving fan of Mari Smith, I make sure to read all of her blog posts (and much of her other social media activities). Earlier this week, she posted an interesting article about someone who “hijacked” her tweet that included a link to a company she was endorsing. The person changed out her link with his own company’s link so that it looked like she was endorsing HIS company and then retweeted.
I am sure this has happened before, but I hadn’t heard of it. In fact, it had never occurred to me that people would do that. I am sharing this story and a link to her newest blog post that updates the story as I think it is a must-read for anyone participating in social media including Twitter.
Read the story here.
Let me know your thoughts!
PS. Thanks Mari, for sharing this incident and for keep us in the loop on the most positive ending!
