Courtesy of The Next Web comes a story of an American actor who turned a private tweet public – to his embarrassment.Tweet stream showing Rainn Wilson's error in not keeping a private tweet private

Hat tip to Megan Rusk for the find.

    It’s sort of sweet you have no idea who he is and fail to grasp that he is being funny. It’s kind of his thing, what with being a satirist. 

    His twitter stream features a heavy dose of irony and I figured that was pretty clear given he didn’t delete the message, just posted hilarious follow ups.
    Nice try though. :)

    Lol. Then the joke’s on me, B. you’re right; I don’t know who he
    is and didn’t realise the was intentionally tweeting as he did. He certainly fooled a lot of folks, by the looks of it.

    Thanks for correcting me :)
