ScotusBlog Trolls the Dumb, Angry People Who Yell at It by Mistake
We collect the 10 most sarcastic, funny and bewildered reactions the independent news agency had when it was trolled by mistake following the Supreme Court ruling yesterday.
Navigating health-care reform hasn't be easy. And today, a number of angry social media users realized Twitter can be just as hard.
Monday, the Supreme Court announced a much-awaited decision involving crafts retailer Hobby Lobby -- namely whether its owners' religious beliefs could exempt it from a key provision of the Affordable Care Act and include certain contraceptives in its healthcare plan. The court ruled for Hobby Lobby.
Many people who weren't following the case -- or the English language -- particularly closely became confused by two similar Twitter handles: the Supreme Court of the United States of America (@SCOTUS), the highest court in our fine land, and ScotusBlog (@ScotusBlog), an independent news agency that reports on the highest court in the land. Those angry about the ruling yelled at @ScotusBlog by mistake and the agency decided to have a little fun.
Here's what can happen when you Tweet at smart people irresponsibly, folks. A man warned is a man half saved.
