Twitter is a great time waster or a good stop when you are bored. Two night's ago on Twitter, the hashtag #CalmMeDownin3Words was trending on the site and people were taking their best stab at being funny in 3 words.
CBS Boston Freelance Writer David Leavitt tweeted:
Leavitt’s tweet has garnered 950 retweets, more than 2,300 likes, and almost 2,000 responses, many of them negative.
People on Twitter also went after Boston's WBZ for they thought Leavitt worked for.
WBZ responded to more than 100 irate twitter users, first proclaiming, “Mr. Leavitt is not a current or former employee of WBZ-TV or CBS. His comments do not reflect the views of our station.” Before changing it to, “Mr. Leavitt does not and never has worked for WBZ-TV or CBS.” It’s noteworthy that they argued that he does not “reflect the views” of the network, since they claimed he never worked for them.
But despite the network’s passionate denial that Leavitt “does not and never has worked for WBZ or CBS,” his finger prints are very much present on their website. CBS Boston’s website actually has an author page dedicated to his work, which displays nine articles he has written for them.
Look which author is one that is featured:
Even though the last article he had written for CBS Boston was in September 8, 2015, it means their claim he has “never” worked for them is a lie.
