Think of this as a public service announcement.
According to the official website of The White House, all tweets sent to (or from) an official government account are archived. As in, forever. While I’m not saying that there will be ramifications to asking the President of The United States if he wants to “smoke a blunt and listen to Kanye,” I’m not saying there won’t be, either.
Remember, the internet is an über-efficient archival tool and while you think it’s hilarious to throw around racial slurs (omitted from this post – but the sheer number of these is overwhelming), joke about murder, or just ask some of the most mind-numbingly dumb questions on the planet now, you might regret this one day.
Or, The President could take you up on that offer to smoke out and listen to Kanye. What am I; a fortune teller?
So what are people talking about now that they have (almost) direct contact with The President?
Woke up from another sex dream about @POTUS – I'm sorry/you're welcome, sir.
