TheDailyBeast: Infamous Accidental Tweets

3 of 11

Brian Stelter

The New York Times’ TV and media writer Brian Stelter broke news on Dec. 13 that he didn’t necessarily intend to. The journalist meant to send a direct message regarding a shake-up at ABC News, but instead sent a public tweet to his nearly 97,000 followers. The tweet was retweeted 25 times and Stelter followed it with a tweet immediately after, writing, “Well that was embarrassing. That was supposed to be a DM.” Although Stelter tried to cover his tracks further by tweeting his source was a two-day old Page Six story, the story turned out to be true and it was public knowledge by the end of the night that George Stephanopoulous would replace Christiane Amanpour at ABC News.
