Chris Brown's Twitter Meltdown Proves Our Deleted Tweets Are Still Out There

Twisted 9

Chris BrownIf you're a Chris Brown fan, there's nothing that says I love you on Valentine's Day like seeing a tweet from one of your fave men telling you to "F!@* Off!" The Grammy Award winner for Best R&B Album gave a little bit of a Twitter tantrum yesterday, when he posted a series of ranty posts ending with one bold statement:

"HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate F!@* OFF!"

Welp, looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed the whole past year yesterday. The 22-year-old has since deleted the tweets

Sigh. This is the perfect example: just because you've deleted something off Twitter doesn't mean it's actually gone.

Putting the fact that I'm not the biggest Chris Brown fan aside -- it's always good to learn from someone else's mistakes. The way that Twitter works is that your personal timeline is a living, breathing (OK, not really) thing. Essentially, as soon as you post something to the site, all of your followers, and anyone who just happens to stumble upon your page (if it's unprotected, that is) can read your 140-character messages.

You know what that means, don'tcha? They can screen grab them and then post them all over the Internet, too! Womp womp. While yesterday's offensive tweet may not be on Brown's timeline anymore, it still is floating around in cyberspace, awaiting loads of inevitable criticism.

That's why it's SUPER important to be careful about what you post on the popular site. I'm not just talking about angry rants, either. If you misspell something, tag the wrong user in a post, or get a little tipsy and send one-too-many drunken messages -- these aren't things that are just going to disappear.

My suggestion? Keep things on your timeline pretty PG and proofread everything. If you think you're going to offend someone with what you're saying, then ask yourself if it's worth posting in the first place. A safe tweeter is a happy tweeter. Right, Chris?

Are you on Twitter? What's your biggest pet peeve about other people's posts?

Good to see he's grown up in the last 3 years.

Not the appropriate action but how would you act if you're constantly told you don't deserve something? Separate his personal life from his music then react to him winning an award.

Well just when people were starting to give you he benefit of the doubt saying you deserved to be on the show because you changed because you went to therepy and anger management and thought maybe you could be a role model for change.

.....Well guess we were wrong and you proved it with your little could have tweeted in a more dignified way....You have a lot more to work on before you belong on another AWARDS show grow up there are children out their that read those tweets

Pfft. Moron. Every one of his annoying songs on the damn radio is about how I'm gunna f**k you girl, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, and more sex. An award for the garbage he puts out? Rediculous. Oh and yes, I do change the station.

Don't have a twitter account; don't give a flying eff about what celebrities, companies, and other nobodies are doing EVERY SINGLE SECOND.

@vanessa its ironic your calling him a moron when you cant even spell ridiculous right. Anyway I don't blame him for having the reaction he did. He is constantly being criticized for his mistakes! People need to get over it and move on.

@xtina6143, it's ironic that you're criticizing someone else's spelling when you can't spell "you're" correctly. "Your" means "belonging to you." "You're" means "you are."

Haha, Mandago ftw. Thanks for the laugh :-)

The thing is Chris Brown has done this before

xtina6143 - Well, if I found out someone beat the hell out of you, you can guarantee I wouldn't "get over it," no matter how much time passed. That person would always be a complete asshole, unworthy of any kind of praise, in my eyes. And I don't know you from Eve.
