Sen. Susan Collins Fires Social-Media Staffer For Twitter Mix-Up

Anyone who has ever had to use social media for work knows the fear of mixing up professional and private accounts.

You see, up until very recently, Luke Welch was a “New Media / Press Assistant” for Sen. Susan Collins, the junior senator from Maine. On Wednesday, it seems that Luke meant to send out a personal tweet, criticizing Sen. Bernie Sanders. It read, “Good ol’ @SenSanders is always entertaining. Not a huge fan. I’ll give him this, the genetically modified food label makes sense.” But, Luke didn’t send it from his account … he sent it out through Susan’s official Twitter feed.
