Meghan McCain Blows Up on Twitter
And then thinks better of it …
Yesterday afternoon the Twitterverse was treated to the mini explosion of Meghan McCain’s life-long resume, in 140 character increments. Apparently, a nasty commenter, who is also a fellow DailyBeast.com writer, expressed disbelief that Meghan has ever had an actual job on Meghan’s latest column (in which she calls Karl Rove a creep for following her on Twitter).
So, in case you too have been wondering just what exactly qualifies Meghan McCain (aka @McCainBlogette) as an expert commentator and author, here you have it (in reverse order for your reading pleasure):
Hi everyone, so today I read a particularly nasty comment from a person I won’t say how but I indirectly work with questioning if I have
ever worked. Ironic because we work at the same place right now. So here is a list of all the jobs I have had in my life, because apparently
I need to fucking spell it out: My first job was at 16 where I tutored kids after school at a local church, when I was 17 and 18 I worked
at the flower desk of a local hospital in phoenix, delivering flowers to patients. In college I interned at saturday night live, was an
assistant to a photographer and worked for Newsweek Magazine. After college I joined my Dad’s presidential campaign and founded my
multi-award winning website mccainblogette.com, which is officially the first blog in history to document a presidential campaign, I also
wrote a New York Times best selling childrens book about my fathers life. Currently I am a columnist for TheDailyBeast.com and am currently
working on my second book, this time a work of non-fiction for adults. The press release can be found online. So to my fellow beast writer
that in a fucking twitter nutshell is my life and what I have accomplished so far.
I am sorry I am human and once in a while it all gets to me! But my little rant made me feel better
When we went back to grab a screen shot of the Tweet-rant, we found Meghan had, apparently, deleted all those posts from her Twitter account.
Which brings us to an interesting question. What is the difference between Meghan McCain’s Tweets and her column on DailyBeast.com talking about Tweets? Is there a difference? It is fair to report on both of them, even if Meghan obviously had a change of heart and deleted her own Tweets? Is all fair in love and Twitter?
