Ah, technology. We have you to thank for equipping us all with the tools of on-the-spot citizen journalism. And we also have you to thank for arming our most notoriously loudmouthed celebs with 140 characters or less and a digital platform reaching millions around the globe in an instant. The most recent little piece of celeb zeitgeist to come crashing out of Twitter, of course, stems from Ashton Kutcher's much-maligned post (and subsequent backlash, and subsequent backtracking tweets, and subsequent deleting of tweets) that defended Penn State's football coach, Joe Paterno, before he learned all the facts surrounding Paterno's major sex-abuse scandal.
