Worst Weiners Honored

1477468_735888519758217_785493187_nOur friends Jonathan Bernstein and Erik Bernstein of Bernstein Crisis Management, Inc. launched the first ever “Weiner Awards” to recognize the best (or maybe worst) examples of social media Darwinism at work.

Social media has made it easier than any time in history for human beings to embarrass themselves and even ruin their careers in a matter of minutes. The most painfully awful and sometimes funny examples from 2013 were recognized  by the first Weiner Awards. From Jonathan Bernstein, the company founder and president:

We dubbed this phenomena ‘Social Media Darwinism,’ and are grateful to former congressman and former mayoral wannabe Anthony Weiner for inspiring us.

This years winners (or losers) include Justine Sacco, Clorox and a tie, between Greg Gopman, head of San Francisco’s AngelHack and Taylor Palmisano, who was finance director for Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI). Find out why and read the full story here: http://www.sacbee.com/2014/01/07/6052428/worst-weiners-honored-for-acts.html#storylink=cpy
