There are apparently such things as automated text messages that post replies straight onto Facebook.
It’s a good idea for people on the move, perhaps, those with signal but no WiFi, or, say, mass birthday wishes.
Except, in a world of quick communication, people are occasionally a little hasty. Now sure, few want to receive an automated text – it’s probably from your phone provider informing you of price rises, after all.
Not all are, though. And that’s where problems might arise, as exampled in the exchange below. It’s the work of Jonathan Behrle, who had an automatic ‘send birthday wishes’ text, and responded negatively – he shared on Twitter the calamitous consequences of his haste (swearing).
The message arrives
Jonathan is unimpressed
Yes, Jonathan Behrle discovered the problems of replying to texts without properly reading them when he inadvertently told a fellow student at his school, called April, to “f*** off”.
We’re not entirely sure how or why the text came through. But Jonathan, from Iowa, US, was left with a bit of regret. He probably deleted the post to April’s page.
