If you stay abreast of social media happenings at all, you may have heard about the recent public argument between director Kevin Smith and Southwest Airlines that occurred on Twitter. If you don’t hound Twitter (or you missed it), here’s the short version: Kevin Smith got kicked off a Southwest flight due to size restrictions and took his complaints to Twitter. Southwest responded on Twitter and on their blog.
Personally, I have no dog in that fight and am making no comment here about how either party handled themselves. What I do find interesting, however, is how one uninvolved employee of Southwest Airlines responded to a satirical blog post about the incident - and used his employer’s name to identify himself.
