In the wacky world of Social Media, you never know when your Smartphone is going to go psycho on you and start snapping pictures of your coworker’s shoes and shoot them out via Twitter.
Repeatedly. As in, at least 10 times.
This was the ill-fated luck of The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Amie Parnes Tuesday morning as she appeared to be extremely focused on the shoes of her Irish coworker, Niall Stanage. The Belfast native is former editor of Magill magazine. He was silent on the matter and didn’t return our requests for comment. Or maybe he’s just embarrassed about his shoes?
Parnes quickly apologized for the mishap, writing, “Sorry Tweeps! Twitter malfunction. I don’t like @NiallStanage’s shoes that much!” But not before HuffPost‘s Sabrina Siddiqui could chirp out, “@amieparnes really wants us to see someone’s shoes,” with the accompanying photograph of Parnes’ repetitive tweets.
Parnes did not respond by press time.
