When will these guys ever learn the power of spiteful social media?

Twitter can get you fired, or it can make you really silly. Or worse.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took to Twitter to answer questions posed to him through the hashtag #AskCommish. Of course, people started beating up on him.

The New York Daily News said:

No topic - be it the Redskins nickname controversy, head injuries, gay athletes or Jimmy Haslam's legal woes - was out of bounds for Twitter interrogators during the chat. While some touched on real problems with today's NFL, many of the questions were just plain ridiculous.

Goodell took it all in stride, answering some of the "questions" with humor.

This is the world of Twitter!

I have a Twitter feed, too. Catch all the fun and discussion here. I promise you we won't make fun of you there!
