What you tweet may be held against you

Let Freedom ring.

I’m here in Hainan Island, China, just off the coast of the mainland, in the South China Sea. Think Maui.

Except here, I have no access to Twitter, YouTube or Facebook because the signals to those sites, among others, have been scrambled. For now though, I can still get email and other sites so when I was able to read the FastCompany post, Would you Twitter if Your Tweet Carried a $50,000 Price Tag?, I thought, Yes.

Yes, we need to be aware that regardless of the medium – email, Twitter, blogs – what we say can be held against us. But here is the thing: we get to say it.
