As celebration ensued in Egypt, CBS correspondent, Lara Logan was attached by a mob of men where she was beaten and sexually assaulted. Nir Rosen, a U.S. journalist takes his thoughts to his twitter page.

The story follows;

In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Rosen stated that he felt sad about his actions and that he “was a jerk.”

This is a very public account of not being able to take back what you put on the internet. Twitter can be a great tool if used correctly. Remember what you put out is there for good.  Since Rosen’s tweet he has drawn heavy criticism as well as resigned from his postion at NYU.
