Tila Tequila Is Full of Twitter Nguyen

Don’t you just love modern technology, especially when it comes to electronic communications? It makes stories like the Tila Tequila/Shawne Merriman hubbub all the more enjoyable; more so when one of the parties doesn’t understand the concept enough to stop talking, er, tweeting about a potential legal situation. Apparently, Tequila’s attorneys are as ignorant to how things like Twitter actually work as she is, or they believe Merriman’s account and are simply collecting their no doubt exorbitant retainer.
Ever since the story broke (PFT is doing the most due diligence with this story), Internet Nguyenner Tila Tequila has been running to Twitter to either lambaste Merriman or give her side of the story. Now, in a he said/she said couples disagreement, this might be all fine and good, but when criminal charges are in the balance and very serious accusations are being thrown around, blabbing your insufferable mouth throughout the Twitter-sphere isn’t the wisest way to defend your position — even if you think deleting these posts will erase the abject brilliance you were displaying.
Sorry, it doesn’t.
Thanks to the awesome Tweleted.com, once you’ve entered those 140 characters worth of nonsensical criminal case-torpedoing, they don’t go away. This means, whether you are trying to start spitefully immature memes (#ChargersSuck… how very original) or laughing at unfunny jokes (Calling him “Shawne RepairMan” is funny? Who knew?), but you come to your senses and delete that stuff, it’s still out there, ready to be consumed by bloggers or defense attorneys representing the very person you are trying to punish.

In other news, is it wrong for me to long for a day when the name “Tila Tequila” was nothing more than a MySpace oddity? Damn you, Shawne Merriman. And MTV.
