Ashton Kutcher has turned his Twitter feed over to his production company after sending a misinformed tweet about  Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno, that angered members of the Twitter world.

“Up 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,” Kutcher wrote on his blog. He will now have Katalyst Media, a production company he co-founded, check his feed to “ensure the quality of its content.”

Kutcher sent a tweet Wednesday night lamenting that Paterno had been fired. This firing occurred, as many people know, because Paterno’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 didn’t seem good enough to satisfy people’s outrage at my misinformed post.”

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 “properly manage [his] feed,” which he has now done.

While Kutcher said he enjoys Twitter’s ability to bring him closer to friends and fans, he thinks it “has 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
