Reporter's Notebook

The art and science of the interview

Putting Away the Magnifying Glass for a Minute

with 2 comments

Twitter, like the real world, is a microcosm of people’s feelings and reactions. Some people are offended by something that others don’t think twice about. Some people realize personal limitations or forgive small infractions and others take them so personally that it’s a set up for a Hatfields and McCoys scenario. The best you can do is ignore when you should, or apologize when you can and move on. Like most things in life, it’s not personal since people aren’t born bigots, nobody knows what you’re really going through and everybody wants love and respect.
