Imagine what would happen if they were pretty determined, and sent it to your workplace, your church, your parents, et cetera. It’s bizarre that we treat Twitter as a private place, when literally everything that happens there is visible to every human being on Earth.

It’s bizarre that we trust to these fragile online identities when any hacker can cut through them, bizarre that we wear such different masks to different friends when they could just talk and compare notes, bizarre that we dare to talk at all when we know every word we say is logged and the future may be less forgiving than the past.

They pore over your public statements – Twitter feed, Facebook timeline, any blogs you might have written, anything you’ve said in mixed company that you don’t know if somebody else wrote down waiting for the time they could use it against you.

Have any of you ever said or done anything which, if signal-boosted, would be very embarassing and might prevent you from getting a job?

Before you answer, consider this: the person signal-boosting you has much wider reach than you do.

All the Reason columnist did was retweet it and add some commentary about how she hopes he becomes un-hire-able. It’s not even divulging a secret; the guy said it on his public Twitter.

Is it really so wrong to do what’s basically just signal-boosting his comment?

Maybe you were stupid enough to admit you were gay or trans under something traceable to your real identity.

Maybe you voted for Trump (a firing offense in some places) or against Trump (a firing offense in others).

And it was never that convincing an effort to begin with. In a world where an average of 250 resumes are received for each corporate position, how convincing does an effort have to be to ruin somebody’s life?

Do you think your dream company is going to spend a long time sorting through each claim and counterclaim to determine that the highly-Google-ranked page about you claiming you’re unfit to work in your industry is mostly unfair? They’re just going to cut their risks and move on to the other 249 candidates. Suppose there’s a Reason columnist who wants to get you fired.

[EDIT: See here for discussion of various complicating factors; my claim isn’t going to be that a completely innocent person was punished, so much as that this entire paradigm of punishment is dangerous] What particularly bothered me about this situation was that the columnist involved was a libertarian who writes for Reason, and her supporters were mostly other influential libertarians.
