World’s First Twitter Accident

At the Affiliate Summit dinner, I noticed that our host, Missy Ward, was sitting on a motorized cart with her right leg wrapped in a cast. I asked her how that happen and she told me that she fractured her leg while twittering! I’m pretty sure this will go down as the world’s first Twitter accident.

You might be wondering how does someone fracture their leg while twittering. Well, I’ll let this video explain it. If more people start injuring themselves on Twitter, I’m sure the government will step in and put a warning labels on it.

“Warning! The use of Twitter without due care or attention maybe hazardous to your health.”

      Wine makes everyone feel better 🙂

  2. Do not walk or RUN while twittering!

      I still don’t understand why people are still twittering!

  3. Likely not the first, but certainly a memorable example

      Drinking kills driving skills

  5. Pity her… ;-(

    Then we should not twittering while walking…

    How about while dating?

    Hey, maybe now there will be Social Media Insurance. Maybe mandatory now… 🙂

  7. MIssy Ward says:

    It’s important to note that no DUI’s were had — it was just one glass of wine 😉

    However, I think I should have gotten the extra collision insurance on this thing for all wheelies I’ve been doing.

    Catch ya later John, when I roll through the show floor.

    1. Missy – did you forget about this little accident after a few glasses of wine? http://www.flickr.com/photos/affiliate/2874638772/

    Hopefully there will be no more additional twitter accident…
    Never imagine it can be that dangerous

  10. Broken bones cure cancer. For sure!

    OMG, the first twitter accident. Couldn’t say this is funny, because as it is… it is a painful experience. Nobody would like to go through what Missy did. I had a sprained ankle once and the pain was really really debilitating, I couldn’t run errands, I couldn’t even walk to the bathroom with my body weight piling down the sore ankle. You guessed it, I am sympathetic. It’s no joke really!

    A fair warning to all too… if you’re walking or running, focus. If you’re Twittering, stop, sit down and focus.

  12. It had to happen. Of course, it brings up the question – what’s the most exotic place that you’ve twittered from?

    if ANYONE thinks missy ward is not one tough cookie, they’re dead wrong. i have to commend her for finishing the charity walk for breast cancer with a broken foot.

  14. WordVixen says:

    I guess Dragon Naturally Speaking will have to come out with a Twitter edition for handsfree Twittering. 🙂

  15. ZK says:

    The video is funny hah haahh

    Pity she didn’t get rich from this accident. I thought she could sue Twitter and get several million bucks in compensation.

    John,Sorry to hear about Missy’s accident. Maybe everyone should stop drinking wine while twittering and walking for breast cancer charities? Sounds like an indoor activity to me!
    Shawn Collins just invited me to Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas next January 2009.

    It was an real honor to meet with you at BlogWorld Expo 2008. Yours was the first blog I subscribed to in July 2009. You were very kind to me, at the MArket Leverage dinner, and we laughed over Michael Kwan crashing a Segway v.2.0! That violates the laws of physics as the Segway is designed to remain upright no matter what.

    Only the legendary Michael Kwan is the only human being on the face of the earth to have crashed a Segway! Nice riding Michael!
    Respectfully, Nicholas Chase – future Super Affiliate and Segway ‘non-crashee’!

    Woah!! That is something odd. But you know what that would be the worst accident today.
