UT College Republicans' President Fails at Twitter

As we are all well aware social medias are extremely powerful. A couple of weeks ago I wrote a story about how to self promote yourself using social medias. This is not what I had in mind.

UT College Republicans presidents apparently don't know understand Twitter and the fact that it's an extremely public forum.

According to The Alcalde the former group's president Lauren Pierce tweeted “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.” This tweet made a national embarrassment of the young republican.

After the tweet hit pretty much every news organization in the US, Pierce lost her internship with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and was ousted as the group's president. The punishment fit the crime and we all hoped that Pierce had learned her lesson.

Turns out that Pierce's predecessor didn't learn from Pierce's mistakes. On Dec 18th Cassandra Wright, the new president tweeted this:

I understand that people have their own opinions, I have mine and clearly @cassienwright has her's. I could go into how stupid this girls statement is but I'm not going to. She clearly has a warped perspective of reality and based on some of the tweets that were bombarded at her I'm sure she has had enough criticism for her statement. @cassienwright keep your private opinions to yourself, you racist bitch.

Oh and here are is What Obama Has Done, in case anyone needed a reminder.
