Twitter Gone Bad…

The Tacoma New Tribune has gone to social media…and this came across this morning:


A man was early today on I-5 in Tacoma. The road was blocked for 3+ hours.

Now, with our traffic, it does help to leave early to make it to work on time. But normally being early does not cause I-5 to be shut down. Turns out they didn’t proof the submission. Unfortunately, the mistyped headline makes grammatical sense.

Headline should have read : A man was killed early today….

Note to the TNT: there is a bit of a difference between being early and being killed.
