The Twitter account I refer to goes by the name of dinner_guest and this is just a sample of one of their recent batches of messages on Twitter
This was followed by a discussion with my good friend Sean P. Aune on IM about the fact that this is probably some sort of demented marketing campaign hoping to go viral.
But the more I thought about it the more I began to wonder – what if?
After all one has to consider that most heinous crimes are committed by people with huge egos that if done properly social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook would be ideal ways to feed that ego.
Following that train of thought one would wonder how famous, or infamous, murderers of the past would look upon our new world.
Would Jack the Ripper have used BrightKite and Twitter to announce and geolocate his latest kills?
Would Hitler have tweeted when Poland was invaded or to announce the daily totals of the gas chambers?
Would Jeffery Dahmer have used Facebook to find his victims and posted pictures of his freezer contents?
Like I said – what if?
