Twittering Over Twitter

In 2010, Twitter's use of the site bit.ly for shortening URLs was still a relatively new phenomenon, so maybe that explains why one reporter had some trouble tweeting out a link during the State of the Union that year.
When then-Fox News' Major Garrett attempted to send followers a link to his blog about the address, he instead tweeted a link that led to an erotic website.
Garrett blamed the bit.ly service, but the damage had been done. Members of the media had already had a good laugh at the correspondent's expense.
And of course the mistake will live on in the annals of the Internet.
