Dear 50 Cent

Over at Twitter, that happening guy 50 Cent seems to have put his foot in it.

Apparently this guy was once in a special ed class. So his comment aimed at a special ed student was intended as being tongue in cheek.

Unfortunately, Twitter doesn’t tend to present sarcasm all that well. Hash-tags can go a long way to fixing that, by spelling out that “hey, this is a joke.” Unfortunately, especially if you are discussing a group who are characterised by not always picking up social queues – well, you can’t really rely on those social queues being picked up on.

Did you join in the “#Dear 50 cent” campaign?

Have you joined in other Twitter campaigns? Did they achieve anything?

I have certainly joined into #youmightbeanautismparentif, and the #fatmumslim photo-a-day challenge for July. Let me know, what drives your social media and blogging.
