Ashton KutcherÂ has turned his Twitter feed over to his production company after sending a misinformed tweet about Â Penn State football coach,Â Joe Paterno, that angered members of the Twitter world.
â€œUp until today, I have posted virtually every one of my tweets on my own, but clearly the platform has become too big to be managed by a single individual,â€ Kutcher wrote on hisÂ blog. He will now have Katalyst Media, a production company he co-founded, check his feed to â€œensure the quality of its content.â€
Kutcher sent a tweet Wednesday night lamenting that Paterno had been fired. This firing occurred, as many people know, because Paternoâ€™s defensive coordinator has been implicated in a child sex-abuse scandal.
When he realized the error, he quickly retracted and deleted his tweets (thank god for screen shots) previous tweets; however, that didnâ€™t seem good enough to satisfy peopleâ€™s outrage at my misinformed post.â€
Kutcher, who co-founded an organization that fights child sex slavery, was extremely apologetic about the error. He said he would take a sabbatical from tweeting until he could find a way to â€œproperly manage [his] feed,â€ which he has now done.
While Kutcher said he enjoys Twitterâ€™s ability to bring him closer to friends and fans, he thinks it â€œhas grown into a mass publishing platform, where ones tweets quickly become news that is broadcast around the world .
If I had damn near 9 million followers on twitter my tweets would become news too, but anyway Goodluck to you Ashton hope to see u somewhere in the tweeting future! O_o
