Twitter Taboo: 5 Things You Must Never Discuss Online

3. Racist Jokes or Banter

A fraction of your FB friends are company spies, insurance agents, media personalities, officers of the law and voyeurs waiting for an opportunity to exploit your bad judgment.

For this reason you must never post a racist joke or comment on any social media platform.

Just ask Florida music teacher Lauren Orban. She posted this comment on Facebook: “I’m fairly convinced that one of my students may be the evolutionary link between Orangutans and humans,” and one of her Facebook friends saved the comment and reported her to the school’s principal.

Orban made national news and received a warning for her actions.
