When tweeting in frustration, it helps to direct your anger toward the right target.
There were social media-using court watchers around the country who took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with Monday's Supreme Court's decision in Burwell (Sebelius) v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., the 5-4 decision that said some for-profit companies can't be forced to pay for certain types of contraceptives for their workers. Several tweeters directed their comments right to the Supreme Court.
The only problem: The Supreme Court isn't on Twitter.
What is on Twitter is SCOTUSblog, a privately-run blog that covers Supreme Court news. So instead of directing angry comments to the justices responsible for the ruling, people tweeting to @SCOTUSblog were chastising a group of bloggers who had nothing to do with making the decision.
And the folks at SCOTUSblog decided to have a little fun with the confusion, retweeting several tweets with their own comments added.
In some cases, SCOTUSblog's writers responded as themselves.
In other cases, they posed as justices, sending tweets dripping with sarcasm.
SCOTUSblog also dropped hints that tweeters should check the account's Twitter bio to figure out who they were.
A few people figured out something was a bit off about the responses, but none of the tweets @SCOTUSblog retweeted quite hit the nail on the head.
Let this be a lesson for Twitter users everywhere: Double check who owns the account you're conversing with before unleashing complaints on Twitter.
