1. Anything that you put into electronic format — i.e. pictures of your bare chest, pictures of your junk, pictures of you and a gal with a boyfriend willing to blackmail you, pictures of you and lots of interns, etc. — can and probably will leak out, especially if you send them to someone.
2. Unless we ourselves have pointed the camera at your junk or did an Internet search for it, it is very, very unlikely that we want to see it. That being said, my feelings are hurt that, though Rep. Weiner sent pictures of his junk to lots of people, I somehow was left out. Am I not a good lefty? Are there no perks to being a Democratic woman?
3. If you are caught, don't lie. Just tell the whole truth (quickly), apologize (once), and get on with things. Don't say you were hacked unless you actually were hacked.
4. And this one is so very, very critical: Facebook and Twitter are private companies. Facebook and Twitter have both tried to claim that they have some proprietary rights to your content, including photos, and can profit off of it (though Facebook's terms at the moment do not say that, they have in the past). Just think about that some before you start using Twitter and Facebook to do things that could be potentially politically embarrassing to you.
Twitter, one of the platforms through which Weiner was distributing his ... um ... wiener has terms of service that say, "By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed)."
Even more hilarious, Twitter's content is archived at the Library of Congress. I wonder if that makes Weiner's wiener the first congressional wiener in the Library of Congress.
Anyway, just remember: Don't show anyone anything electronically that you wouldn't want everyone to see.
