Retweet of the Day - March 6, 2013

Twitter can be awesome and also be a liability at the same time. Over the weekend, a rumor circulated and was retweeted hundreds of times stating that LSU Head Football Coach Les Miles was set to resign after the revelation of an affair between Miles and a student.

By Sunday, it was clear that this was a completely unfounded and untrue Internet hoax, but the gossip had begun. Today's retweet, from Baton Rouge Morning Advocate (newspaper) reporter Les East (@EastAdvocate) philosophically sums up how a little irresponsible tweeting can cause a stir.

"A lie gets halfway around the Twitterverse before the truth even opens an account -- Aristotle. #LSU"

LSU has seen its share of "Big Aristotles" over the years.
