Seth Mandel shreds the NYT in must-read thread over their meltdown on old embarrassing tweets from journos

The Washington Examiner’s Seth Mandel has a must-read thread on that New York Times article we told you about earlier where they have a meltdown over Trump allies archiving embarrassing tweets from journos.
TL;DR: 1. As this is a common practice in most companies (and colleges, etc.), “Stop inviting twitter trolls to run your HR for you and life will be better for everyone.”
TL;DR: 2. “I guess it’s relatively new for lefty journos to have ppl spending all their time trying to get you fired.”

Most of us have been targeted by the few resources on the right that do this as well, because the right has an obsession with righteous purges. I guess it’s relatively new for lefty journos to have ppl spending all their time trying to get you fired. It’s not fun.

Companies are to blame too. How many ppl got fired over an old dumb joke, or something out of context, or something the person clearly no longer believes? Stop inviting twitter trolls to run your HR for you and life will be better for everyone.
